OZ 5 Martin Sharp Hippy Poster 1967

One of THE posters for collectors of psych & counter-culture memorabilia. "Plant a Flower Child" by Martin Sharp was one side of the OZ magazine #5, folding out to an impressive 29 1/2"x 44 1/2" (the magazine was entitled "Surprise Issue").

 

Dripping with hippy imagery, the poster was based on a series of photographs of two naked twins by Robert Whitaker. Sharp then created this collage presentation & the poster was printed in several different colours. Such is the stature of the poster that when Bonham's held their auction of psych & underground art on 31st July 1996, this image was used to adorn the cover of the catalogue.

 

The poster shown here has several neat tiny holes to cross-folds but as can be seen it displays superbly.
