Chicago printing of The Rebel Worker no. 6, published June 1966, first published in London and distributed on May Day 1966.
The Rebel Worker was a revolutionary journal published in Chicago by members of the Industrial Workers of the World and edited by Franklin and Penelope Rosemont, founders of the Chicago Surrealist Group. Issue 3 of The Rebel Worker focused on the experiences of younger workers.
Issue 6 was the first English edition of The Rebel Worker, edited in London by Charles Radcliffe. The same year he edited The Rebel Worker 6, Radcliffe would go on to produce his own highly influential journal, Heatwave.
The Chicago printing of Issue 6 replaced the original hastily illustrated cover art by Radcliffe with an engraving of The Temptation of St. Anthony attributed to Pieter Bruegel the Elder and reprinted the text of a leaflet issued by the Anarchists of Chicago on the back cover.
