Abracadabra was an international magazine of poetry and arts that ran for 5 issues from 1977 to 1981. Editor-in-chief of the short-lived magazine was Marcello Angioni (1939), a Sardinian who had moved to Luxembourg and from there published Abracadabra with co-editors poet, artist and Swiss-Italian architect Franco Beltrametti (1937-1995) and Dutch photographer Harry Hoogstraten (1941). The magazine brought together a choice of American and European poets and artists, combining English and Italian poems and texts.
Abracadabra #1 was published in an edition 700 copies in 1977 and contains contributions by Philip Whalen, John Giorno, Joe Brainard, Anne Walden, Michael Gibbs, Franco Beltrametti, Jack Hirschman a.o. The condition of this copy is fair: the pages have yellowed over the years and the cover has some damage and shows some discolouring.
