The front page has a heading: "Andy Warhol: 'I Thought Everyone Was Kidding'" with lead-in: "Alive & Well" and photo of Warhol with superstar actress Viva. (see images) Coverage continues inside.
I suspect this to be an extremely rare item because their was really no reason to save it at the time.
It is worth noting that "The Village Voice" was an American news and culture paper, known for being the country's first alternative newsweekly. Founded in 1955, the Voice began as a platform for the creative community of New York City.
Complete with 72 pages, tabloid size, one fold along the center, nice condition.

Provenance note: This issue comes from The Village Voice's own archives, part of their in-house collection used to create their digital archive. Rare as such.
