A Magic Rite to Exorcize the Pentagon

(8 ¼ x 14 in). Mimeographed single sheet. Very good condition with horizontal crease along center due to folding. Item #ANT163

Ephemera by Ed Sanders, drawn from an ancient Hittite spell, used in the famous exorcism of the pentagon in 1967. Led by Allen Ginsberg, the Fugs, and the Yippies, this spell was invoked along with a chant meant to levitate the building in question. A historically significant, arresting broadside, collaging together ancient occultism and 1960s hippie protest into one. Ed Sanders was the editor of Fuck You, an important publication of the Mimeograph Revolution, and an artistic bridge between the Beats and the Yippies, which ran for thirteen issues. A conduit between many well-known 1960s figures from Charles Olson and Allen Ginsberg to Amiri Baracka, Tuli Kupferberg, and many more.
