Antonie’s photographs have appeared in The Full Deck Anthology; Dabble: Poems 1966-1980, John Godfrey; The Green Fuse, A Memoir by Lita Hornick; Nice to See You – Homage to Ted Berrigan; Superstar in a Housedress – The Jackie Curtis Movie; Not Enough Night (Naropa University); Collaborations by Greg Masters; and many other small press publications.
