Joy to the World: Birth of an Imagined Planet


A favorite piece of cover art, 12 x 14 inch original print, created by comics genius Vaughn Bode for Vintage in 1967. I thought it looked festive. 

This image also marks the birth of Deadbone, the world he would draw for the rest of his life. The grating on the side says Ginsberg on Art...McLuhan on Culture, Songs by Tom Paxton, Birth Control for the Coed, and Photo-Story, Fiction, Poetry, Poster, Satire, all in this issue.  Content teasers for a lovely moment. 

Celebrate the season... and the imagination.
