"Zephyrus Image was a Northern Californian press that operated through the nineteen-seventies. With their own idiosyncratic methods they produced subversive, anarchic works of great wit and elegance that lampooned the foolish. They attacked the Nixon White House and took on environmental adversaries, donating their labor to worthy causes. They subverted the gallery system and ignored normal channels of distribution open to small presses, taking their work to the streets to give away." Jacket blurb.
