This book reproduces a collection of 136 handmade posters, mostly silkscreened on recycled computer paper, produced by students in the Political Poster Workshop in Berkeley, University of California, to protest against America’s war in Vietnam and the decision of the Nixon administration to take the war into Cambodia. The numbers 4973 in the title were thought to protect the posters from being removed by the Berkeley Police Department.
Condition of the book is generally very good. The covers have one or two very minor scuffs and but are clean and bright, the spine is intact and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound.
