Aram Saroyan

Pages was published in 1969 with a design similar to Saroyan's eponymous book from the previous year, though in a smaller 8.25 x 5.5 inch format. Like Aram Saroyan, Pages was a trade edition published by Random House (New York) in both paper and hardback formats. This copy in white coated paper covers with title in black.
The back cover carried the following statement:

I write on a typewriter, almost never in hand (I can hardly handwrite, I tend to draw words), and my machine--an obsolete red-top Royal Portable--is the biggest influence on my work. This red hood holds the mood, keeps my eye happy. The type-face is a standard pica; if it were another style I'd write (subtly) different poems. And when a ribbon gets dull my poems I'm sure change. (A.S.)
