Dorothy Iannone

Loving this book I picked up @ the New Museum in NY. It includes a booklet of her works, Dorothy Iannone: An Icelandic Saga. These works are illustrations and writings of the time she met her lover and muse Dieter. They are quite lovely to dive into... An outstanding lady who successfully sued the US government for confiscating her copy of Henry Miller's Tropic of Cancer in the 1960s, her show at the museum is free, so check it out if you are in NY.....

A funny snippet from one of her works talking about Allen Ginsberg biting her the first time she met him:
This is the dress she was wearing when she received the bite:
