Ceylon Tea: Product of European Exploitation!

San Francisco: 1972.

This is one of Garcia's best-known images, a "... sarcastic 'deep reading' of Lipton's tea package...[intended to] destroy any naivete about the consumer relationship to foreign labor..." (see Cushing & Drescher, Agitate! Educate! Organize! 2009). Also issued in an open edition offset lithograph; original Garcia silkscreens are quite rare. Silkscreen in four colors, 26" x 20" (ca 66cm x 51cm). From an edition of approximately 75 copies, hand-signed and dated lower right. Clean, fresh example; tiny tack-holes and minor wear at corners, else Fine; Grade A/A-.
