Series I: Correspondence, 1961-1993

The correspondence series includes letters to and from Lita Hornick and Kulchur Press. Most of the correspondence in editorial or administrative in nature, though as Hornick's lists of friends and business associates overlap considerably, the letters are often social in tone.

Series II: Kulchur Magazine and Kulchur Press, 1953-1989

This series comprises the bulk of the collection and includes the editorial, administrative, and financial records of Kulchur.

Subseries II.1: Kulchur Magazine, 1961-1966

This subseries contains files for each issue of the magazine that Lita Hornick had a hand in editing-- from Kulchur 3 through magazine's final issue, Kulchur 20 (though the file for Kulchur 4, which was guest-edited by Gilbert Sorrentino, is mostly photostats). These files generally contain the manuscripts for articles and reviews for each issue (often heavily marked up by Ms. Hornick) and hand-written notes about layout and the order in which the pieces should appear.

Subseries II.2: Editorial Files, 1967-1989

This subseries is comprised of files for each of the books published by Kulchur Press and Kulchur Foundation, arranged alphabetically by author. Most files will contain an original manuscript, and corrected and uncorrected proofs, cover art or illustrations, as well as any additional material related to the book's production or promotion such as promotional material and invitations to release parties. This series also includes the manuscripts, proofs, and other editorial files for books written by Lita Hornick and published by Kulchur. For files on books authored by Hornick, but not published by Kulchur, see Series III: Lita Hornick Files.

Additionally, original artwork for Kulchur Press publications (such as Joe Brainard's artwork for Album and Bean Spasms) will be found with the editorial files for those books, rather than in the artwork Series.

Series IV: Photographs, 1950s-1990s

The photographs series is a relatively small series that includes professionally taken portraits of Lita and her family as well as a number of snapshots and candid photos of Ms. Hornick with her family and friends. Of interest, as well, are snapshots taken at some of the parties thrown by Lita and Morton Hornick. There are also photographs of artworks sent to Ms. Hornick by art galleries so that she, an enthusiastic art collector, could preview new works.
