Editions of the press' serial publication, "Schmuck," contain works of several artists from a single country, such as Iceland,
France, and Hungary.
The Beau Geste Press existed in England between 1971-1974. It was founded by Felipe Ehrenberg, David Mayor, Chris Welch, and
Martha Hellion. It printed the works of visual poets, conceptualists, and neo-dadaists, many of whom were closely tied to
the Fluxus movement. The press printed artist books using inexpensive materials, such as mimeograph machines, cheap paper,
and staples. Consequently, many of the materials in the collection are rather fragile. In 1974 the Beau Geste Press merged
with several similar presses to form BAAA, the Beau and Aloes Arc Association.
