New York: Film Culture Magazine, 1963. First Edition. This copy is INSCRIBED by Brakhage at the blank opposite his introduction to poet Kenneth Irby: "To Ken Irby / That I should meet "Roadrunner" here in these circumstances at this time of most wonderful day I take as the best of all possible signs / Stan Brakhage / SF - 2 Nov 64." Irby's nickname came from his first published pamphlet, "The Roadrunner Poem," which appeared as the fourth issue of the journal Duende in 1964.

The legendary Fluxus issue of Film Culture Magazine, devoted to the work of director Brakhage, with a die-cut to the corrugated front panel revealing a negative image of Brakhage's eye.

The new century has revealed Brakhage to be one of the most important experimental filmmakers of the last century. His oeuvre was celebrated in 2005 with a stunning multi-disc Criterion Collection blu-ray release titled "By Brakhage: An Anthology."

Near Fine in corrugated wrappers, lacking the original wraparound label.

Criterion Collection 518.
