"Brakhage" in Film-Makers' Cinematheque Monograph Series No. 2, with typed note signed from Jane Brakhage

New York: Film-Makers' Cinematheque, 1966. First Edition. The second issue of a monograph series published by Jonas Mekas' Film-makers' Cinematheque, a publication previously unknown to us and apparently short-lived. With a brief typed note signed by Stan Brakhage's wife, Jane Brakhage, to a Jim Adams in San Francisco, letting Mr. Adams know where a copy of the journal "Metaphors" can be ordered. Also included in a tall side-stitched two-color 1971 catalog listing Brakhage films for sale.

The entirety of this issue is devoted a story called "Brakhage" by Dan Clark, an experimental fiction in which an invented "critic" analyzes 28 actual Brakhage films (beginning with Interim in 1952 and ending with "The Art of Vision" in 1964) in exhaustive detail, revealing via minutae both the character of Brakhage and the critic.

While the author emphasizes in his introduction that the entire effort is "imaginary," it is in fact one of the earliest and most thorough analyses of Brakhage's work.
