Lampoon: An Historical Art Trajectory, 1970/2010.

Np.: Dennis Publishing Pty. Ltd., 2011. First edition. 4to. Perfect bound illustrated wrps., 62pp. Profusely illustrated in colour throughout, including the author's early and recent collages. Issued to accompany the exhibition celebrating Anderson's life and work held at the University of Sydney during February-March 2011 (and elsewhere since).


SIGNED and warmly inscribed by Jim Anderson on the title page to Felix Dennis: "For Felix - with much love my very best wishes and thanks for everything of course Jim". Together with a printed card issued for the exhibition signed and inscribed by Anderson to Felix Dennis, dated "25/2/11". A terrific association copy, linking two of the original Oz trial defendants (Felix Dennis also funded the book's design and publication and suggested to Anderson that he add an autobiographical text to accompany the imagery).


Anderson's light-hearted memoir includes 12pp. on the period he spent co-editing Oz, in which he recounts how Felix Dennis's fears over the potential sales of his Gay Power issue proved unfounded ("an instant hit"), and describes their subsequent collaboration on the School kids issue (this section is illustrated by his recently designed variations on the original artwork for the covers of Homosexual Oz, Acid Oz, School kids Oz, Cunt Power Oz and the Special Pig issue). In later sections Anderson recall the years spent in Bolinas and his return to Sydney in the early '90s, including his role in the LGBT communities (his satire on the attitude of the Catholic Church towards homosexuality, a collage from 2003 entitled "The Belles of St. Mary's", is reproduced, along with numerous colour photographs).
