A Dance with Fred Astaire

£25.00

Product description

Born in 1922, Jonas Mekas has lived a uniquely impactful life as an artist, filmmaker and bon vivant that spans the 20th century into the 21st: he played an instrumental role in the careers of Jack Smith, Andy Warhol and numerous other iconic artists and hung out with everyone from Maya Deren to John Lennon and Yoko Ono, from Tiny Tim to Salvador Dali, from the Kennedys to - yes- Fred Astaire.
An extraordinary collection of anecdotes and rare ephemera featuring a dizzying cast of cultural icons both underground and mainstream, both obscure and celebrated. Memories and diary entries, conversations and insights into his work sit alongside collages of beautifully reproduced postcards, newspaper cuttings, film negatives, lists, posters and photographs, envelopes and letters, book covers, telegrams, cartoons and doodles.
