Help Your Local Junkie Kick

[San Francisco]: Zephyrus Image, [1970]. First edition. 6 1/2 x 12 1/2", linocut in green on newsprint.

The rare first state of the broadside, originally distributed by posting them on telephone poles around Berkeley. One of the greatest posters of the 70's, deriving a strange power from Myer's masterful linocut that joins somewhat anachronistic, Beardsley-like figures with mechanical imagery and very modern slogan.

One of several broadsides the press produced at this time in a similar vein, including Liberate Berkeley and Ford. Johnston p. 185.

Paper toned, as usual, with some marginal creasing and a horizontal fold line to lower margin (not affecting image) else a clean, very good example. Item #27556

Price: $250.00
