"The Museum of Modern Art honored Frank O'Hara with a memorial edition of his poetry illustrated by artists who knew and loved him foremost among them, William de Kooning. De Kooning made his drawings on mylar which he then presented to the Museum. A quarter of a century later, the mylar drawings were transferred to lithographic plates and printed under the supervision of the artist and the Museum of Modern Art solely in order to illustrate the Club's edition of those O'Hara poems that had so moved de Kooning. Seventeen of de Kooning's eighteen charcoal drawings are reproduced here for the first time as originally intended — with their subtle strokes and wide tonal range" (Publisher).
