The first handbill issued by the Communication Company printing their statement of intent.
SF: Communication Company, 1967.
4to. "Our Policy: Love is Communication. Our Plans & Hopes: To Provide Quick & Inexpensive Printing Service for the Hip Community. To Print Anything the Diggers Want Printed. To Supplement the Oracle with a More or Less Daily Paper Whenever Haight News Justifies One..." They go on to describe the capability of their Gestetner "366 silk-screen stencil duplicator," and they ask for volunteers. The Communication Company published many works by Richard Brautigan, and others, and their broadsides and Digger manifestos are probably the best source of documentation for the day-to-day activites in the Haight during the "Summer of Love." Some modest creasing and a few inconspicuous pin holes in one corner, still attractive, very good. One of the foundational documents from the hippie subculture of the Haight-Ashbury. Scarce.
