A rare edition related to General Idea’s mail art and performance piece Miss General Idea Beauty Pageant 1971. Mr. Peanut (a.k.a. Vincent Trasov), Miss Honey (Novik) and Granada Gazelle (a.k.a. Sharon Venne) were artists associated with the General Idea collective who participated in the installation/exhibition at the AGO in 1971. The publisher is uncertain: members of General Idea collaborated with the Intermedia Press during this period and the only clear reference to the edition appears in the inventory of the Intermedia archives at the University of British Columbia, where it has been dated October, 1971.
