The feature article of this issue is an early piece done by cultural critic and icon, Jill Johnston under "dance" titled "Motorcycle by Jill Johnston" Continues on the following page. This is certainly a fine original printing to have for those who collect Johnston-related material.
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 in 24 pages, never bound nor trimmed, tabloid-size, a soft crease across the center, very nice condition.
