From 1956-57, Bukowski lived at 2254 1/2 Branden Street (one mile from our home on Allesandro inRead More Echo Park) while working at Graphics Art Center, and taking classes at Los Angeles City College. He also started work on his first [unpublished] novel at that address. Loren, I'm considering putting together a proposal for a book on Paul Landacre, noted L.A. woodcut artist whose former cabin home near mine is a city historical-cultural landmark. I would enjoy speaking to you about Landacre and the art of woodcutting [a subject I have previously written about professionally at Pop Matters in an essay about Lynd Ward that prompted a "thank you" letter from Lynd's daughter and estate executor]. Contact me if you'd like to chat.

Rodger, Paul Landacre & Lynd Ward are the Marlon Brando & Laurence Olivier of theRead More woodcutting universe. I'm not worthy. I'd love to chat. You can reach me via my blog woodcuttingfool.blogspot.com. Thanks for the kind words.
