Do you have a lot of money you’re not quite sure what to do with? Do you have an inchoate longing for the artist’s life, that pure, essential state of being that delivers us from the hoary clutches of the quotidian and the mundane? Do you have no actual talent or self-discipline? Start your own wacky press so you can hang out with the creative demimonde you long to conspire with! That’s what Harry Crosby did, with Black Sun Press, putting the “Lost” in Lost Generation.
