SF: Privately published by the Diggers/Free City Collective, 1968.

Item #SKB-16470

Full-size poster offset printed in two colors. The poster bears the legend "Free City," and is the work of the Free City Collective, the name the Diggers assumed after they stopped calling themselves The Diggers the previous year. Features a psychedelic illustration of the heads of a man and woman, and lotus flowers, floating amidst a swirling, red, flame-like design. "The Vernal Equinox is your equinox. You are the first day of spring! 5:24 a.m. March 20, 1968 with afternoon dancing and food at the speedway meadow in Golden Gate Park and games and pleasures of imagination everywhere in the park." A very scarce poster, and one of the more elaborate items produced by the Free City Collective that disbanded just a few months after this event. A bit of soft creasing to top right corner, minute tear, near fine (23" x 17.5").

Price: $650.00
