- I hope the resolution on this image is good enough for you to see the G.I. being crushed by the title. Huddled up and anxious. What a great Vietnam-era, counterculture book this is.
- Love the Red White and Blue *on black* color scheme—it essentially says "your country is great because it has laws that will protect you even though your country is doing Terrible things in southeast Asia."
- Jules Feiffer! I probably got this book just because the art was by him.
- Grove Press fought really important legal battles against censorship in the '50s and '60s after publishing banned books like "Lady Chatterley's Lover" and "Tropic of Cancer," among others. For more info, see the entertaining 2008 documentary "Obscene."
- A.C.L.U.—the renegade publisher's best friend.
- "Minus Its Couth" is a strange, fantastic phrase.
- The black cat logo is so super-awesome that I want it on a t-shirt, like, right now.
However, treason may be committed only in time of a declared war and must involve something more than merely expression.~RP
