back  The Great Speckled Bird poster  © 2008 Tom Ferguson   This was used to promote the 40th anniversary of Atlanta's alternative weekly which 'arose' in the late 60s, into the 70s and was revived in the mid-80s to oppose Reaganism. Barry Weinstock also revived it briefly as part of the opposition to Bush's megalomaniacal war on Iraq.
A related image, harking back to those same Islamic roots, is a design for a jazz poster here.
