A striking announcement appealing for manuscripts to be sent to Nick Kimberley care of Indica bookshop or to his address in Windsor. Nick Kimberley was the first employee of Indica bookshop, he would go on to establish Compendium Books and later his own shop Duck Soup, pioneering avant-garde writings and poetry.  

‘Big Venus’ was edited by Kimberley from 1969-70 and ran for four issues. The journal included contributions from Richard Brautigan, Paul Buck, Bob Cobbing, Claude Pélieu, John Ashbery and Gerard Malanga.

An important artefact from the heart of the radical book scene in 60’s London.
