    Description

    Fuck the Draft by Kiyoshi Kuromiya (1968). Rolled, Very Fine. Protest Poster (20.25" X 29.75"). Miscellaneous.
    Offered in this lot is arguably one of the most iconic anti-Vietnam War posters ever created, depicting a young man burning his draft card in a symbolic act of defiance. Designed by famed activist Kiyoshi Kuromiya under the pseudonym Dirty Linen Corp, this poster was distributed via mail order, with suggestions to mail a copy to mothers, and even the White House. Eventually, the FBI arrested Kuromiya for using the US postal service to distribute 'lewd and indecent materials,' but this poster had already made its rounds and secured a place in anti-draft history. An unrestored poster with bright color and a clean overall appearance. It may have general signs of use, such as slight edge wear, light creases, small tears, or minute surface scuffs. Rolled, Very Fine.
