Mint condition – Approx 12x 5.75 cm unused ticket for the legendary psychedelic event staged 29th April 1967. Although intended as a Free Speech Benefit for IT whose offices had been raided it, became the event that defined the psychedelic movement in Britain.
Designed by Michael English ,(one half of Hapshash and the coloured Coat) featuring an adaption of the IT girl (based on silent movie star Theda Bara). Although the quote in the speech bubble is adapted from Plato (the original citation Republic IV “When modes of music change, of the State always change with them”), Miles possibly gleaned it from the 1961 essay by Allen Ginsberg ? (It was later used as a song title by the Fugs in 1968).
Provenance : John Dunbar, who arrived with John Lennon (and therefore didn’t need a ticket). Also IT publisher Miles’ partner at Indica Gallery & Bookshop in 1966.
