    R. Crumb's "A Short History of America" poster.

    DAMAGED / BARGAIN BIN

    We have a stack of these posters that have mild damage to the corners or other creases outside the image area (see images below). Good for dorm rooms or for folks who want to frame the posters (creases can be under a mat).

    Arguably cartoonist Robert Crumb's most popular and most timeless image, this poster shows the gradual metamorphosis of a single plot of land from virgin wilderness to urban decay in 12 panels. It first appeared in black & white in 1979 in the ecological magazine Co-Evolutionary Quarterly and in Snoid Comics. It was rearranged and colored by Peter Poplaski in 1981 and quickly became Kitchen Sink Press' best-selling poster. After the popular but depressing 12-panel poster went out of print, Crumb added three panels to answer the "What next?" question posed in his original final 12th panel.

    In this 15-panel version Crumb depicts three possible futures:

    a.) Lower left shows the "Worst case scenario: ecological disaster;

    b.) Center: "The fun future: Techno fix on the march!"

    c.) Lower right: "The ecotopian solution."

    Measures 22 inches high x 24 inches wide. 1991 printing on coated stock. Shipped rolled in sturdy tube.
