Stop the Draft. Washington March 22

New York & Washington: Mobilization Against the Draft, 1980. Offset lithographed poster in colors, 60cm x 45.5cm (ca 24" x 18"). Slight edgewear, with small closed tear and crease at upper right margin (away from central image); Very Good.

Striking graphic produced for the anti-conscription rally in Washington, D.C. of March 22, 1980 – a seminal punk-era event that attracted more than 30,000 marchers, many of them young men of high school age who had been mobilized by President Jimmy Carter's proposal to reinstate Selective Service for all U.S. males age 18 and older. The design, striking in its graphic simplicity, marks a clear shift away from the political graphics of the Sixties and Seventies towards a more postmodern, industrial aesthetic that would become a hallmark of much 1980s graphic design. Scarce; not at CSPG; OCLC one copy only (Museum of Modern Art).
