Eight pages on five quarto sheets of different colored quarto stock. The cover sheet prints an astrological chart above an image of a couple making love and a map of the USA with a circle drawn around Chicago. The contents include a full-page, incendiary text by Jerry Rubin "SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP America: You are smiling but there is blood flowing out of your mouth: Your wealth is death to the soul." Another page prints an erotic psychedelic illustration, one sheet is the "Yip-Out: Resurrection of Free" handbill created for the Central Park Easter Sunday Yip-Out with instructions on the verso on how to make a whiskey bottle fire bomb, and other pages include an illustration of Buddha, an illustrated text on life and theatre and how to create "a life oriented energy circus without authority systems," and finally an illustrated discussion of the symbolism of the forked cross (that looks like an upper case "Y" as in Yippie). By far the most substantive and ambitious production issued by the Yippies for The Festival of Life that never took place due to the rioting that ensued. Small corner chip to first page, else near fine. Scarce, the first time we've encountered this. Bookseller Inventory #
