Following the arrest of leading underground figure John ‘Hoppy’ Hopkins for possession of cannabis, Steve Abrams (& others) organised a ‘Legalise Pot Rally’ in London’s Hyde Park in July 1967.
A couple of posters were produced in relation to the event. Click link below.
SOMA Steve Abrams “Times Advertisement” newspaper Poster
Martin Sharp produced posters for both the 1967. John Hurford produced the 1968 poster also used as the cover for OZ Magazine #13.
I’m aware of a few variations of this poster. The main two are both printed on foil :with/ without the address at the bottom.The production of this poster led to Peter Ledeboer setting up Big O posters. Supposedly the posters without the address were printed for fly posting around London, and the batches with ‘BO1 Cannabis by Martin Sharp Published by Big O Posters Ltd 219 Eversleigh Road’ at the bottom were for retail at head shop or mail order.
