John Lennon Bespoke Postcard OZ 1971

A fascinating piece of John Lennon counter-culture memorabilia. This is a bespoke John & Yoko b/w postcard (3 3/4"x 5 7/8") which they had printed with their faces superimposed upon an image of a classical painting. To the bottom left is the printed inscription, "John Lennon 1971". The reverse was left blank (presumably for them to write notes). In this particular case, John's personal assistant, Dan Richter, has written a note to John Fenton, concerning a £2,000 contribution to the Freedom Fund. The card has been stamped with a date of "12 Aug 1971" & with the Tittenhurst Park, Ascot address where John, Yoko, Dan & his wife lived together.


John Fenton (the recipient) was involved with The Beatles  through the infamous "Seltaeb" merchandising company & subsequently managed The Moody Blues & Third World War. He was intimately involved in the music scene & the counter-culture movement & helped organise fund-raising to pay for the defence costs of the 1971 OZ Trial. Lennon showed an interest in the politics of the underground & was constantly being asked to contribute finance. It is likely that the £2,000 sent to Fenton was for the OZ case.

 

Sold with the Lennon postcard, is the original envelope addressed to John Fenton.
