About This Item

Los Angeles: Sawyer Press, 1967. Vintage social awareness poster by white artist Ron Cobb.

A left-wing call for civil unrest in the US during 1966 and 1967, a movement that resulted in more than 150 documented race riots that took place during the summer of 1967, a wave that led President Lyndon B. Johnson to establish the National Advisory Commission on Civil Disorders, also known as the Kerner Commission.

American-Australian artist Ron Cobb has worked as a cartoonist, film designer and writer. In 1965, at age 28, following a stint in the US Army, Cobb began freelancing for the radical Los Angeles Free Press, and quickly gained notice as one of the finest radical to left-leaning political cartoonists of the mid-1960s and early 1970s. In 1967 Cobb designed the cover for Jefferson Airplane's 1967 album, "After Bathing at Baxter's." Beginning in the 1970s Cobb began work as a highly successful production designer in the film industry. Among the films Cobb contributed to are "Dark Star" (1973), Alejandro Jodorowsky's uncompleted "Dune," "Star Wars" (1977), "Alien" (1979), "Raiders of the Lost Ark" (1981), "Conan the Barbarian" (1982), "Back to the Future" (1985), "Total Recall" (1990), and "Southland Tales" (2006), among many others.

22.5 x 33.25 inches. Very Good plus, with 1.5 inch diagonal strip of cello tape to the recto of each of the top corners, a small touch of soiling to the bottom right, and faint rubbing and creasing overall.
