INDEPENDENCE DAY CARNIVAL.

A set of four small posters (41.5x27cm.), one of each colour variant produced (turquoise blue, buttercup yellow, salmon pink and pale lilac), all but one of them double-sided, announcing the 'Independence Day Carnival - A Celebration of People's Rights', organised by the Friends of Oz and held in Hyde Park on July 4th, 1971. Illustrated with a cartoon illustration by Alain Le Saux.


The versos of the lilac, pink and yellow copies print news of the obscenity trial, arguing that it is not just Oz "on trial at the Old Bailey, it is in fact an entire community which is being prosecuted", before concluding that "The eunuch prime minister [Ted Heath] and his repressed harem of cabinet ministers have created a climate which is stifling every new expression of sexual, political and cultural freedom."


Pink and lilac copies slightly creased at upper top right corner, o/w Near Fine.
