Washington DC: Pyramid Atlantic Press & Peter S. Beaman, Published 1989, no. 47 of 100 signed by Beaman and Whiteley. Green stiff paper tray with 56 cards with silk screen collage imagery on one side of each card, and texts on the other. Fine, light wear to tray and see-through glassine top. Cards roughly 8.5 x 6 inches, with rounded corners, fine. Endorsed by Richard Kostelanetz, who is quoted in an inserted sheet of introductory notes as saying of this: 'I'd thought that Book Art might be dormant until I saw Peter Beaman's "Deck of Cards," which is as handsome and complicated, verbally as well as visually, as the best avant-garde literary art has always been. A true shufflebook, thankfully in English, this is worth any price.' The 'plot' involves five characters in Shadyside neighborhood of Pittsburgh, including the brief affair between Paul and Julie, and a bus ride in the East End of Pittsburgh. Well represented in libraries, but RARE on the market. Near Fine.
