1959 Beatnik Stationery Set!
From the collection of: Howie Pyro
Located in : Ephemera, Empowerment, Music


super wild & inventive stationery set from 1959 with great conceptual pages in different shapes, sizes & colors…one is a cube! these were hard to photograph & my scanner is busted so bear with me…it says “for pen scratching, this is way out”, shoot me the quill, phil” and ” don’t be a cube, rube, pen me often”

What Allee has to say about this:
This is BEYOND FANTASTIC!! I’ve never seen this and probably would have had to have been rushed to a hospital had I stumbled upon it at a thrift shop, swap meet or on eBay, etc. I’m still hyperventilating.

Beatnik stuff was so great anyway but the fact that these are cut into different shapes and everything is so individual is outstanding. I know it would be even better if you still had the dictionary but as far as this aKitschionado is concerned this is pretty perfect.

one is jst an odd shape with music notes & beats playing sax & bongos…

my favorite is a record!

there are more, but the envelope back is really great…sadly i don’t have the dictionary it came with…

gotta love it!!
