Printed by Bruce Washbish at his Anchor & Acorn Press. 17" x 11"; printed letterpress in black & blue on light blue stock, with a reproduction of the 'Rabbit' pressmark from the original drawn circa 1957 by Robert Duncan. Verso with return address of Albatross Books, and the poster is lightly scored across the middle to allow folding. This poster never folded. The program, also unfolded is 13" x 9" and printed on both sides to form the four pages, the front with a facsimile of the cover from the first book of the White Rabbit Press, designed and drawn by Jess.

The participation of Albatross Book Company (actual DBA) in this symposium and exhibit was proposed and lead by our colleague at the shop, Doug Lowell, who was at the time in the Master's in Poetics program at New College of California in San Francisco. Faculty in that program included as I recollect, Robert Duncan, Diane Di Prima, Joannne Kyger, Duncan McNaughton, Anselm Hollo among others. The rest of us at Albatross supported Doug's tireless efforts, scouting material to round out the exhibit, and helping with preparations. I believe Doug put the poster and program together working with Bruce Washbish, Duncan, and Jess at least. As one can see in the list of acknowledgments in the program, there was quite a community of contributors to the symposium, and the result was a real poetics shebang on White Rabbit at several venues. A high spot for the old store.
