1967. Item #A6562
Duskin, Alvin, et al. Sixteen San Francisco Artists Present Alvin Duskin's Vote on High-Rise Coloring Book. San Francisco: Alvin Duskin / San Francisco Opposition 1967. N.p., many line ills. Large paperbound (covers soiled and a little chipped); internally very good. ** One of activist Duskin's many progressive campaigns, this one to urge defeat of a pro-development proposition on the San Francisco ballot. Duskin's short text is followed by scary illustrations of how "ugly and expensive" earthquake-vulnerable skyscrapers would wipe out San Francisco's pastel Victorian and liveable neighborhoods. The artists were Judy Pelikan, Steve Hall, Fred Wakida, Sykes, Peter Marks, Dattel, Cummings Walker, St. Clair, Robert Pease, and others. Distributed free. [Protest, Coloring Book].
