Twenty-One [21] Pages for John Cage on the occasion of his 75th Birthday

Los Angeles: Los Angeles Festival, 1987. Limited Edition, one of an unnumbered edition. Published in conjunction with an event held at the Los Angeles Festival on September 5, 1987, honoring Cage on his 75th birthday. INSCRIBED by John Cage on the title page: "for Ben Latting / John Cage." Laid in with the booklet is a program for the event.

The publication compiles remarks about Cage from various friends and colleagues, including Paul Zukovsky, Morton Feldman, and Minna Lederman, with text laid out in the style of a music score, with different typefaces used for each contributor (apparently Cage's design suggestion).

Booklet: 8.5 x 11 inches. 25 leaves, spiral bound. Very Good plus, with light toning on the final two leaves and a small bruise on the bottom edge of the front wrapper.

Program: 5.5 x 8.5 inches. Bifold. Near Fine.
