1968 Mother Earth At Vulcan Gas Co Jim Franklin Original Poster Rare
1968 MOTHER EARTH AT VULCAN GAS CO – JIM FRANKLIN ORIGINAL POSTER RARE. THIS IS THE LAST POSTER ISSUED BY THE VULCAN. AFTERWARD THEY COULD ONLY AFFORD HANDBILLS. VERY COLLECTABLE FOR INVESTMENT. ARTIST: Jim Franklin is a seminal Austin artist from the 60s and on. He popularized the armadillo as the hip counter-culture alternative to the Texas Longhorn. Armadillos became the iconic symbol for those not enamored with the Texas political establishment. Besides an astonishing array of music and event posters, JFKLN has many gallery shows and is collected as a fine artist. He works away at his studio in Austin. SIZE – 6 1/2″ x 9″. PHOTOS ACCURATE SOME FOLDS AND EDGE DAMAGE. Original – like everything we sell. Delivered with certificate of Authenticity. TIP TO COLLECTORS: IN THE 60’S I BOUGHT PSYCHEDELIC POSTERS BECAUSE I LIKED THEM AND THE ARTISTS. I KEPT STUFF FROM THE DEMONSTRATIONS BECAUSE I BELIEVED IN IT. IT TURNED OUT THE BEST INVESTMENT I EVER MADE. IF I WERE YOUNG I WOULD BUILD A COLLECTION OF PUNK ERA POSTERS BECAUSE SO FEW ARE AROUND AND THEY ARE THE LAST – PRE INTERNET – THAT WERE USED FOR COMMUNICATION. IN ADDITION, THERE ARE GREAT OPPORTUNITIES TO BUILD COLLECTIONS CHEAP THAT AT SOME POINT WILL BE HIGHLY SOUGHT AFTER. THE WOMENS MOVEMENT, 2. THE GAY/LGBQT STRUGGLES, 3. UNITED FARM WORKERS AND LATINO EFFORTS, 4. PRO POT ANTI DRUG WAR CAMPAIGNS (STILL ALMOST ½ OF THE PRISONERS ARE FOR MINOR DRUG OFFENSES), 5. SOLAR, WIND ENERGY- ANTI BIG OIL, 6. SOCIALIST AND ANARCHIST MOVEMENTS, 7. PEACE AND ANTI NUKE, 7. BLACK LIVES MATTER AND RELATED, 8. THESE WILL ALL GO UP IN VALUE. BUILD A COLLECTION OF HISTORICALLY IMPORTANT PINBACKS AND POSTERS WHILE THEY ARE CHEAP.
