“Harry Smith’s Birthday Party” by Allen Ginsberg, 1998


This print contains a phantasmagorical universe as envisioned by Harry Smith’s dear friend and compatriot, Allen Ginsberg. “I did a series of lithographs at the Gemini G.E.L – a great, very elegant printing establishment in Los Angeles. I was there in residence for about a month-and-a-half this year, and produced six images which they’ll make into a portfolio.” – Allen Ginsberg

On January 14, 1998, the complete edition was numbered by Gemini and screen-printed with an estate stamp authorized by the Allen Ginsberg Trust.
