PRIMARY INFORMATION

Great Bear

The Complete Set

Edited by Dick Higgins. Introduction by Alison Knowles, Hannah Higgins. Texts by John Cage, Allan Kaprow, Claes Oldenburg.

During the glory days of Something Else Press (1964-1974), its founder, the poet, editor and scholar Dick Higgins created the Great Bear imprint to publish pamphlets that were quickly printed and easily disseminated, guaranteeing wide distribution and accessibility. Ranging in length from 16 to 32 pages, saddle-stitched and printed on varying color stock, the Great Bear pamphlets showcased the work of some of the most innovative writers and artists across the twentieth century: the likes of Jackson Mac Low, Oyvind Fahlstrom, Robert Filliou, Robert Watts, Emmett Williams, Dieter Roth, David Antin and Claes Oldenburg appeared alongside predecessors such as the Italian Futurist composer Luigi Russolo and John Cage's seminal Diary: How to Improve the World (You Will Only Make Matters Worse). All pamphlets have been out of print since their original publications in the 1960s. Great Bear: The Complete Collection comes housed in a wooden box and contains a complete facsimile reproduction of each of these fabulous pamphlets, along with essays by Alison Knowles, Hannah Higgins and others.
