I Remember by Brainard, Joe

I Remember

Brainard, Joe

Four volumes: I Remember, I Remember More (this copy inscribed to Burt Britten, of the Strand Bookstore, by the author), More I Remember More and I Remember Christmas. The complete original sequence of the author’s masterpiece. The first three vols. published by Anne Waldman, poet and Brainard collaborator, in editions of 700, 800 and 700 copies respectively. The final, subject specific volume, with illustrations by the author, published by the Museum of Modern Art in 1973. The artist and writer’s first solo books. I Remember was popular from publication, no less than three sequels in three years, and now, 40+ years on, after absorbing imitations by individuals and appropriation by writing courses, is maintaining a modest publishing momentum – Brainard collected, rearranged, and added to these initial versions for a one volume edition published by Full Court Press (1975), Penguin reprinted this edition (1995), so did Granary (2001), it was included in the Library of America’s Collected Joe Brainard and Notting Hill Editions published the first English edition (both 2012) – while the appeal of what Joe Brainard did with his combination of ingredients remains as seductive and mysterious as ever.
