A group of six items, including autograph postcards + collage.

i) two autograph postcards signed and an original collage with an accompanying note from Gianfranco Mantegna (then on the road in France and Italy) to Bill Levy and Jack Henry Moore in London, c. late 1967/early 1968. The collage (19.4x20.8cm.) includes four lines in holograph ink (attributed to Jenny Hecht): "My name is Paradise Now/ Call me Me/ or call me You/ Just as long as you never insult me/ I'll make all your dreams come true."

One of the postcards was sent from Cefalù, Sicily, where The Living theatre were preparing 'Paradise Now'. Gianfranco Mantegna was an Italian-born photographer and a member of The Living Theatre who accompanied them on their travels between 1965 and 1969, and whose photographs Levy published in International Times;

ii) a 2pp. holograph note signed from Living Theatre member Günter Pannewitz to Jack Henry Moore concerning photographs for potential publication in International Times. Undated (c. early 1968);

iii) autograph postcard signed from Living Theatre member Rod Beere, sent from San Sebastian, Spain to Bill Levy in London, November 1967. It reads, in part: "unfortunately Antigone Bacchus dances censored - we are obscene because we dared to touch our bodies in public - I would like to censor the bullfights - we can hardly be as cruel."
