two legends

In 1959-60 Dick Higgins (above) collaborated with (and then a little later met) Bern Porter. The result of the collaboration was Higgins' first book, What Are Legends (1960). They didn't have enough money for a typesetter so Porter hand-lettered the volume. For the story, and a recording of the two of them telling of their meeting, go here.
