Edition: First edition


Piano Tavola, Italy: Edizioni LOPLOP, 1986. First edition 12mo, perfect bound in wraps. Debut issue, and to the best of our knowledge the only issue published of this excellent collection bringing together mail art with cassette culture. With contributions from Guy bleus, Ryosuke Cohen, Vittore Baroni, Guglielmo Achille Cavellini, Andrzei Dudek-durer, Luc Fierens, Karsten Mattes, Seiei Jack Nakamura, Ubaldo Giacomucci, G. X. Jupitter-Larsen, John M. Bennett, Manfred Martin, Graf haufen, Annika E. Soderhom, Ruggero Maggi, Serse Luigett et al. OCLC locates no holdings, though a little digging shows a copy in the John Held Jr. collection at MOMA. Near fine with some minor page toning and a touch of staining to wraps.
