Fuck You/ a magazine of the arts

Fuck You/ a magazine of the arts ran for thirteen issues from 1962 to 1965. Considered one of the most influential underground magazines of the early sixties, Ed Sanders’ Fuck You was a deliberately fypprovocative mimeographed journal, at first emphasizing poetry and later expanding to include other writing. Each issue is illustrated with line drawings by Sanders.

Contributors include Sanders, Tuli Kupferberg, Carol Bergé, John Wieners, Andy Warhol, Ray Bremser, Lenore Kandel, Charles Olson, Joel Oppenheimer, Peter Orlovsky, Philip Whalen, Allen Ginsberg, Herbert Huncke, Julian Beck, Frank O’Hara, Leroi Jones, Diane DiPrima, William Burroughs, Gary Snyder, Robert Kelly, Judith Malina, Carl Solomon, Gregory Corso, Robert Duncan, Robert Creeley, Michael McClure, Ted Berrigan, Joe Brainard, Gilbert Sorrentino, and many others — a virtual “who’s who” of avant garde poetry in the Sixties.

Auerhahn Press

Dave Haselwood founded the Auerhahn Press in 1958. Printing many of the key poets of the era in San Francisco, the press’s first title was The Hotel Wentley Poems by John Wieners.

Auerhahn went on to print books by Michael McClure, Jack Spicer, William S. Burroughs, Philip Lamantia, Diane Di Prima, Ronald Johnson, Lew Welch, and Charles Olson, among many others.

Haselwood was also able to incorporate the talents of local artists into his publishing. The cover art and illustrations were provided by Wallace Berman, Bruce Conner, Philip Van Aver, Fran Herndon, Bryon Gysin, and Robert LaVigne.
