A collaborative anthology of the unpublished and the unpublishable — selected and printed by the contributors. Compiled By Richard Kostelanetz, Henry Korn and Mike Metz.
Contributors were invited to submit 1000 copies of up to FOUR 8 1/2” by 11” pages of anything they wanted to include — printed at their own expense. Submissions were collated alphabetically. Biographical notes identify most of the contributors. No manuscript was refused so names and views expressed herein are not the responsability of Assembling Press or the editors.
Assembling appears annually in the early Fall. Its primary purpose is the publication of works too eccentric to be accepted elsewhere. Artist and writers desiring to contribute to future editions are requested to submit samples of their work along with a stamped self-addressed envelope or International Reply Coupons. Acceptance will arrive in the form of an invitation to contribute to the next issue of Assembling. — From the publisher
Some pages are printed monochromatically with both handwritten and typed texts. A mixture of different coloured papers, images, prints, and inserts make this publication special and visually rich.
