Rare Moratorium Protest Poster from late 60s | End the War!
Here we have a rare Vietnam lithograph protest poster made for the Moratorium in the late 1960s. There's peace and love, then there's all elements combining into one image. The stylized "End the War!" block letters mixed with the flower potted in a military helmet...bongo. This beauty appears to be unused, which makes it even more rare. And the historical backing? Forget it. You're drawing a full house in this poker game. I'm expecting a Laugh In episode to break out.
Here's the description of the poster in the collection of the Oakland Museum of California, found at this link: http://collections.museumca.org/?q=collection-item/2010542067
Poster has a stylized drawing of a large yellow flower growing out of a green military helmet. Below the flower and to the left of the helmet is text in large stylized block letters: "End / The / War!". The Bottom Edge has the text: "Join The Moratorium - Work For Peace". The Moratorium to End the War in Vietnam was composed of multiple national demonstrations against the United States involvement on October 15, 1969.
The rare protest poster measures 22 1/2" tall by 18" wide. There are a few spots where the lithograph press missed a few small spots. There are a also a few slight creases along the edges, likely from the storage. Please see all pics as they are part of the description.

History in visual design. And now it's going on all wall.
