Magick is Freedom! Existence Is Unhappiness + OZ #12

Tuesday, October 22nd, 2013

//Magick Is Freedom!, one of a series of 24 A0 posters by Graham Wood which were on show at Scarlett Gallery, Stockholm, last year//

British designer Graham Wood’s 2012 exhibition Magick Is Freedom! was inspired by a single design created by Barney Bubbles and David Wills with a team of contributors in the late 60s.

Entitled Existence Is Unhappiness, this formed one side of the two double-facing fold-out poster inserts with issue 12 of underground magazine Oz in May 1968.
