NOTES FROM A REVOLUTION: COM/CO, THE DIGGERS & THE HAIGHT
Santa Monica, CA & Rensselaerville, NY, Foggy Notion Books & Fulton Ryder, Inc., 2012, First Edition. (ISBN: 0-9835870-3-5) Illustrated Flexible Boards, 4to, 176pp, profusely illustrated in color and b&w. "The social upheaval of the sixties gave rise to many fascinating coalitions and communes, but the Diggers, a little-known and short-lived group, stand apart from them all. Formed in Haight-Ashbury in 1966 by members of the San Francisco Mime Troupe, the Diggers took their name from the English Diggers - a seventeenth century agrarian collective devoted to creating a Utopian society free of ownership and commerce. The San Francisco Diggers under the leadership of Peter Berg, Emmett Grogan, Peter Coyote, and Billy Murcott were true anarchists, with roots in the Theater of the Absurd, Existentialism, and strategies of direct action. They coined slogans designed to prod people into participating and staged art happenings, public interventions, and street theater infused with wicked humor. The Diggers also provided free food, clothing, medical care and lodging to anyone in need as part of their effort to create a unified and mutually supportive community. A critically important part of their methodology were the hundreds of broadsides printed by Chester Anderson and Claude Hayward's Communication Company (or Com/Co) that they regularly produced and distributed throughout the Haight. A selection of these graphically inventive, lacerating, and sometimes funny broadsides are gathered together for the first time in "Notes From a Revolution", which offers a fascinating and oddly moving record of the counterculture in its early bloom". A brand new, most handsome example of this fascinating history of a little known area of sixties countercultural graphic design that was co-published by the great Foggy Notion Books along with Richard Prince's Fulton Ryder, Inc. still inthe publisher's shrinkwrap.. Fine.
