SEMI-COLON – TIBOR DE NAGY GALLERY – JOHN BERNARD MYERS – FIVE (5) ISSUES – 1953-56
A poets’ newsletter emphasizing brief prose and verse

Edited by John Bernard Myers, and published at the Tibor De Nagy Gallery, 206 East 53rd Street, New York, NY, from about 1953 to about 1956. Printed on a single sheet folded once to make four pages 8 1/2 by 11 inches. Myers (1920–1987) directed the Tibor De Nagy Gallery from its opening in about 1950 until 1970. It was established for New York School’s second generation of painters. Semi-Colon was Myers little-known poetry broadside (or “newspaper” as he called it). Ten issues were published with pieces from his “house” poets including: John Ashbery, Frank O’Hara, Kenneth Koch and James Schuyler. In some issues there were contributions from Saul Bellow, James Ingram Merrill, Wallace Stevens and others.
