After a chance encounter at the Boston Antiquarian Book Fair, we have become fans of Klaus-Peter Dienst, a German calligraphist who published Rhinozeros magazine out of Hamberg in the 1960s.  His collaborator on the magazine was his brother, Rolf-Gunter Dienst.  Rhinozeros was a  literary magazine, mostly in German, that occasionally featured Beat writers.  Klaus-Peter did all of the calligraphy for each issue, sometimes incorporating a German translation of English works onto the page.  Jed Birmingham is a William S. Burroughs biographer who has made the whole Rhinozeros archive (10 issues) available online.
