Toronto: imprimerie dromadaire, 1984. Single sheet, 21 x 33 cm, printed as an oblong broadside, on the recto only. A fine copy. One of 150 copies designed and printed by Glenn Goluska for the Typocrafters meeting in Washington, D. C., October, 1984. The quoted text, which consists of 85 words, was taken from Eisenhower’s final speech as President (1959), in which he espouses his belief that the pursuit of ‘absolute security’ is quixotic, and warns of the dangers of rampant militarization as a response to fear. Sadly, though not surprisingly, this text was as relevant when it was printed as when it was delivered, and remains as relevant now as when it was printed. Item #147

Price: $75.00
