Notes: "Allen Ginsberg was a serious shutterbug who delighted in taking candid snapshots of friends and fellow writers, but up until now readers have had little chance to consider the 'poetic' world of his photographs. Here, in the form of 20 detachable postcards, are photographs taken over the years on the poet's many travels and trips abroad."--Page 4 of cover.
