We Shall Overcome: Louis Lo Monaco Collages, March On Washington Momento, Rare

We Shall Overcome: A Collection of Graphic Collages Created As a Memento for Those Who Partcipated in the Historic March on Washington for Freedom and Jobs on August 28, 1963:

Featured on the cover of this month's Smithsonian magazine, this rare collection of five collages was created by artist Louis Lo Monaco as a keepsake for participantsof the famous March on Washington, where Martin Luther King delivered the "I Have a Dream" speech. The set consists of a folder containing five collages; also includes an introduction with facsimile signatures of Dr. King and others, and a table of contents with captions for each piece (further details below).

Very few of these sets wereever published, and they are considered an extremely rare collector's item. Sets that occasionally come upsale can list for as much as $10,000.

This set is in about average condition. Thefolder shows some soiling and quite a bit of wear at the edges, withpartial separation along the fold; all the paper shows some toning from age; the seven sheets are clean and unmarked; somewhat curled at the forward edges; three of the sheets also have small creases at the top right corners, and the contents page has a thin crease on the bottom left edge.

Ships promptly & securely by first class mail, free to anywhere in the world.
