Hides Ugly Blemishes

[San Francisco]: Zephyrous Image [Zephyrus Image], [1972]. First edition. 8 x 11" broadside, letterpress and linocut on newsprint.

One of the earliest broadsides from the press, one of the small handful to use the "-ous" spelling of the imprint. Illustrated with a distinctive linocut of before and after pictures of a junkie's arm. One of the most striking and ephemeral productions of the press, the image was also utilized in a 1972 issue of Open Hand, the magazine published by David Bromige's Cal State Sonoma Class. [Johnston p. 185, 227]

Chipping to both upper tips, newsprint toned, else a very good copy. Item #23513

Price: $250.00
