Spun by Hand

200 copies from 1972.  An early Big Sky publication that looks like a spin-off from the iconic 8.5 X 11, side-stapled Angel Hair offerings.  Reproduced from Waldman's manuscript.  In the pages of Big Sky magazine, there are quite a few holograph poems sprinkled throughout, including a Waldman poem or two.  That is one of the things I love about the magazine.  There is not a set page layout or template.  It is possible to read a typescript poem followed by a holograph poem followed by a comic.  You never know the look of the next page thus making Big Sky a page turner.  The same holds for the Big Sky publications.  There is diversity in form and format.  Unlike Fuck You Press publications for example which generally look the same.
