d.a. levy: cleveland memory project



Cleveland poet d.a. levy was many things: an outlaw, an underground sensation, and a genius among them. He died in 1968 under mysterious circumstances, leaving an unfortunately small legacy of work behind, much of which is difficult (if not impossible) to find. For us fans, the d.a. levy Collection at the Cleveland Memory Project's webpage is an amazing resource. The online material allows us to see material in a way that we have likely never seen it before: written in his own hand. Also features personal letters, poems, scans of his 'zines (back before 'zine was even a word), art and more. The collages (from which the above image was cropped) are a personal favorite of mine. Be sure to check it out, and if you like what you see buy his work!
