* American underground filmmaker Stan Brakage
* Experimental films - avant-garde cinema
* Provincetown Playhouse theatre advertisement

* "Cat's Cradle - "Daybreak" and more

Page 9 has a 4 x 2 inch advertisement for: "The American Underground Cinema presents Films By Stan Brakhage" with some details in small lettering. (see image)
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 16 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.

Alert: Many issues of The Village Voice contain articles and/or photos which some consider offensive, and are certainly inappropriate for children. Please purchase with discretion.
