Joe LoCicero writes further:

So how many people have ever heard of the Bozobook? I have it sitting
right here in front of me... and it says:

400 copies were letterpressed in the Spring of 1981 from a
variety of hand-set types and found art. Twenty-six copies
have been hardbound, lettered A-Z, and signed by The Fire-
sign Theatre. Design, printing, and binding by Harry and
CA 93317. This project was supported, in part, by a grant
from the National Endowment for the Arts, our federal
agency, in Washington, D.C.

It also says:

Material in this book is from THE NOTEBOOKS OF THE FIRESIGN
THEATRE, August 1970-August 1971, the original scripts and
research for the album, I Think We're All Bozos On This Bus.

It is presented as part of The Firesign Theatre's 15th Birth-
day Celebration, and on the 10th anniversary of the release
of the "Bozos" album.

Edited for The Firesign Theatre by David Ossman, in asso-
ciation with Harry Reese and Turkey Press, March 1981.

tion script of "Bozos," xeroxed for this edition, or an origi-
nal mimeographed page from one of several version of the

sot and The Firesign Theatre. The apoca[l]ypse papers
