[San Francisco]: Zephyrous Image [Zephyrus Image], . 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]
Paper toned, as usual, with chipping and nicks to margins and a chunk missing from the upper left hand corner. Item #29144
