SAN FRANCISCO POETS BENEFIT FOR THE DIGGERS.

Original handbill announcing a benefit reading for the Diggers on January 12th, 1967 at Deno & Carlo, a small bar on Vallejo Street in North Beach, San Francisco. Printed in black on twiltone pink stock. 28x21.5cm.


Designed by Richard Brautigan, featuring illustrations of cartoon flowers and a central image of an all-seeing eye encircled by the words "!Free! We love you !Free! We love you!", with scattered around it the names of some of the participating poets. Among them were Lew Welch, Gary Snyder, David Meltzer, Lenore Kandel and Brautigan himself, who first suggested the event to the bar's owner, Lou Marcelli, before enlisting the help of Emmett Grogan. Not listed on the handbill, but one of the evening's main attractions, was Allen Ginsberg, in town for the Human Be-In.
