To Nonsubscribers of Radical America

New York: Situationist International, [1970]. A wall poster issued by the American section of the Situationist International vilifying the New Left publication Radical America for its “mutilation” of Guy Debord’s Society of the Spectacle. Translated by Fredy and Lorraine Perlman, Don & Judy Campbell, Jon Supak and Hannah Ziegellaub, this first English translation was co-published by the Perlmans as a pamphlet under their Black & Red imprint and in Radical America, Vol. 4, No. 5. The text exorciates not only Radical America, but Perlman, Trinidadian Marxist CLR James and Chicago surrealist Franklin Rosemont. Perlman’s good-natured response to the poster was to re-publish it!

Offset printed in red & black on white stock (17 ½” x 22 ½”). Creases from folding with toning along creases; staple holes along edges, mailing marks from the original 1970 mailing from the S. I. to a Minnesota recipient to the one panel of the verso. Only four copies in OCLC (Yale, Northwestern, Stanford, and the IISG). Later reprinted by Black & Red in Detroit. Item #9659
