Item #40356 Show Your Head (Legalise Pot Rally). Martin SHARP, John HURFORD.

152.

Show Your Head (Legalise Pot Rally).

Offset litho poster, printed in yellow, red, pink and blue inks on thin white stock. 75x50.5cm.

The acid-drenched blacklight poster was printed by The Word for Oz magazine to promote the Legalise Pot Rally held in Hyde Park on July 7th, 1968, a follow-up to the previous year’s event. It features a drawing of a long-haired, bearded mystic by John Hurford (only really visible under ultraviolet light), overlaid with an ink drawing by Martin Sharp of a mind-blown hippie smoking a joint, wild flowers sprouting everywhere from his head.

Sharp’s hippie had originally appeared in April 1967 in a comic strip featured in Australian Oz #34, and the poster art was used in a slightly modified form on the secondary cover of Oz #13 in June 1968, under the Michael English/Big O poster fold-out cover.

Trivial edge-wear and minor handling creases, o/w Near Fine.
