Earth Island #1 - Original 1970 R. Crumb Color Poster - 16 7/8" X 21 1/2" For Sale

Earth Island #1 - Original 1970 R. Crumb Color Poster - 16 7/8

Item listed is not framed - or folded in the past (like the one in the pictured frame) - just a better picture than I have taken. Earth Island #1 -
the Robert Crumb cover poster -
1970 - m/nm - uncirculated - Even if you're not a Crumb collector, this poster makes a rare acquisition of 'earthy' comic art .. an early interpretation of the classic Time cover style by Robert Crumb, with a pastoral, natural bent. Created from handcrafted Zipatone layers in the classic method, this piece might be considered a print in the literal sense as the poster was not generated as a reproduction - these are the originals. The pen and ink and Zipatone layers were never returned by the printer - claimed lost in 1970 on delivery of the posters. If you do collect R. Crumb, what a hanging! Is any Crumb collection complete without a representation of #1 ... and it makes a great start or unique display of the '70's roots of environmentalism, printed the same year as the inaugural Earth Day gatherings.

Earth Island magazine published this 16 7/8" by 21 1/2" poster in the fall of 1970 from the same Zipatone originals created for the cover art by R. Crumb during a stay in Chicago. Scans above, which lead to the larger images, are from the magazine art. The poster has a slightly different color hue - more green than blue, for instance .. a brighter orange - than the actual magazine cover. Also, minor Zipatone separation prior to negatives being created for the poster yield a small difference to the area 'underfoot'. Paper is 100# matte finish stock, untreated.

About 500 were originally printed, distributed to the booksellers and distributors of the period which handled the magazine. Many of the posters were shipped quarter-folded along with magazines to individual stores. This item has never been folded, or rolled, but exhibits a slight dimpling in the lower right leaf border just above the yellow banner bar.

This is an original print - one edition - limited in press run number, and distributed free through the magazine distributors and bookshops. Due to the Zipatone creation process, it would not be considered a reproduction. It is signed in the print with copyright notice by R. Crumb - in lower left.

Item will be shipped sturdily rolled in heavy tube, unless arranged otherwise, such as a flat shipping treatment.

It is a beautiful poster, even with the Zipatone seam showing in the upper left corner through the 5 in 50 ... his supplies were dwindling. This is a Mint/Near Mint item near perfect ... no tears, folds or rough corners .. or tape, or stains ...

Savor and enjoy this R. Crumb vision for Earth Island #1 -

Abuyer of this poster, one of the few quarterfolded ones,yet described it as one of the most pristine items seen from the period in a long time. Their framed copy is shown here ...
