OSPAAAL [Organization of Solidarity of the Peoples of Asia, Africa and Latin America] "Create Two, Three...Many Viet-nams That is the Watchword" Poster
Cuba: OSPAAAL, 1967. 13" x 22." Color offset lithograph printed on newsprint-like paper. Original 1967 propaganda poster published by the Organization of Solidarity with the People of Asia Africa and Latin America [OSPAAAL], an organization founded in Havana, Cuba in 1966 as a political movement to fight imperialism and defend human rights. The group produced revolutionary propaganda posters in Spanish, English, French and Arabic that were sent to subscribers around the world.
Very rare: **OCLC** contans a description, but states that "No libraries with WorldCat.org subscription holds this item."
"Create two, three...many Viet-nams that is the watchword" poster headline is taken from a quote from a speech by Che Guevara. Poster contains many duplicate photographs of soldiers and of Che Guevara. Very Good condition with a some light creasing along the top edge.
A statement on OSPAAAL poster condition:
Flaws like small tears, creasing and pinholes are very common in OSPAAAL posters due to a combination of the low quality paper used for printing, humid/hot weather in the place of origin and sub-optimal poster handling and storage over time.
It is difficult to find an original 60s or 70s OSPAAAL poster unfolded and in pristine condition. With most titles, the number printed was very limited and, except for a selected group of collectors, most were disposed of them by dressing walls or recycling. Only a fraction have survived.
