AUCTION - Political - Late 60's - Psychedelic Protest Poster - Good

Offered for auction is an intense late Sixties political head shop poster. The message is anti-police violence. We have a very high contrast photo of a group of policemen, helmets on and ready to go, Quite a menacing picture. Superimposed, symbolically and literally, over the cops is a bright orange handprint, applied in the old fashioned way. The artist has painted his hand and placed the print squarely over the lead policeman. The effect is impressive and direct. No artist or printing credit, but the piece came with another poster in this auction (the Anti Draft poster with the grim Reaper and LBJ), which came from New York. It is quite possible this one did, too. Measuring 23" X 29", this stunning poster is in Good condition, with wear and tear in all four corners, some stains, as well as handling and surface wear throughout. Tape pulls on the reverse, with some staining visible from both sides. That said, this is the only one that we have ever seen. This poster was obviously well displayed for a long period of time. Handmade and we are lucky it still exists. Timely as ever, too.
