ABRAMS, Leonard. East Village Eye.
(New York, NY): Eye productions, 1979. First edition. Broadside newspaper. 24 pages. The first issue of this cool magazine colloquially referred to as The Eye; covering topics such as the emergence of punk rock, hip-hop and fashion as well as fringe pop culture, and the burgeoning art and nightlife scenes that highlighted NYC’s East Village neighbourhood during the 1980s. The paper represented a confluence of popular culture, leftist politics and the artistically innovative. This is a very good example with cover image of James White by ‘Dana’.
