Bibliographic Checklists and Notes

Most of the work examined here is from the contemporary period  with a particular focus on the post war period: the period in time from the end of World War II up until, roughly, the late 1960s and early 1970s.

The categorization of the writers, poets, artists, printers and their work here isn’t meant to be definitive, rather it’s a way to simply organize an enormous amount of information and help form some sort of story-line. Certainly there are folks here whose work started before some of the categories existed in the common lexicon and continued long after a ‘scene’ faded away. It’s not the intent of the work here to presuppose intent or oversimplify the efforts of these folks. As new pieces are added, parts will be reorganized, edited and rearranged… stay tuned…
