This is a signed, undated silkscreen by Louise Webb.

The print is signed “Gypsy Lou Webb”.

The image size is approximately 12.5" x 9.5" and remains vibrant.

The print is cut a little haphazardly, but that would not be visible when Lou added a mat, which the tape on the back indicates she did.

There are smudges on the rear that could very possibly been made during the printing process. 

Loujon Press was responsible for transforming Bukowski into an established writer, even if fame wouldn’t occur until years later. They published Bukowski’s first true books, “It Catches My Heart In Its Hands” (1963) and “Crucifix in a Deathhand” (1965). These books are true works of art in and of themselves. The detail, the printing methods, the craftsmanship, and the pure insanity necessary to undertake these endeavors was as unparalleled then and as it is today.

They also published Outsider magazine, which became the standard for poetry journals at the time. No other publication attracted nearly the talent that appeared in its pages and the production value of the magazine itself was unrivaled. Bukowski appeared in all four issues, with a large collection of poems in Outsider 1 (1961) and as the named “Outside of the Year” in Outsider 3 (1963), featuring Bukowski on the cover and a large center section.
