Friends Christmas Space. A Friends publicity flyer

reproducing Phil Franks' photograph of a naked, joint-smoking Uschi Obermaier with her partner, Rainer Langhans, by her side, his right hand giving the peace sign from between her legs. The closing words from "Knots" by RD Laing are overlaid below. Printed in red on thin white card. Verso blank. 23.2x15.9cm. Fine.

Obermaier was a member of Amon Düül during 1968/69 and lived in their commune in Munich. She met Rainer Langhans in late 1968 (around the time of his prosecution with Fritz Teufel for distributing incendiary literature) and moved from Munich to live with him in Kommune 1 in Berlin; for a while they were known as the German version of John & Yoko. The photograph appears in a censored version and without the Laing quote on the front cover of Friends #11 (7th August, 1970).
