Avant Garde. (Complete run - 14 issues). First edition.

New York: Avant Garde Media, 1968-1971. Sq. 4to. Mostly very good; one with closed tear and one with stains. Most with musty odor.

From 1968 to 1971 Mr. Ginzburg published Avant Garde, an art and culture magazine designed by Mr. Lubalin, whose logo for the magazine was the basis for one of the most popular typefaces of the era. Although Avant Garde included erotic material (an entire issue was devoted to John Lennon's erotic lithographs), this time the focus was more on radical politics, including the "No More War" poster competition.

Mr. Ginzburg shut down the magazine when he started serving his sentence for an obscenity conviction in another publication. Item #51-2501

Price: $295.00
