Hilton Hotel, San Francisco 4/7-9/67

This classic Stanley Mouse image was used to promote the 10th Biennial Wilderness Conference held by the Sierra Club at the Hilton Hotel in San Francisco. These posters come in three variations; one type is printed in black ink only; another is printed in black and green ink; and the third is printed in black, green, and yellow. While there has been disagreement as to which ones are first prints, we feel that they were all printed prior to the show and should all be considered first prints. We happen to own the original printing film for this poster (which came directly from the Bindweed archives) and there is NO yellow film—only the black and green (with no Bindweed credit). This evidence leads us to call the black and green version the true first printing, a belief that is shared by Stanley Mouse, who says he would have never used yellow ink in conjunction with the Sierra Club.

There are three types of original posters:

The Type 1 original is printed on vellum and measures approximately 14¼″ x 20″. This type is printed in black and green with no yellow printing. These do not have the Bindweed Press printing credit noted on the Type 3 poster.

The Type 2 original is printed on vellum and measures approximately 14¼″ x 20″. This type is printed in black ink only. These do not have the Bindweed Press printing credit noted on the Type 3 poster and are more likely a progress proof of the Type 1 poster.

The Type 3 original is printed on vellum and measures approximately 14¼″ x 20″. This type is printed in black, green, and yellow. This version has a Bindweed Press credit on the lower left.

Last, there is a black, yellow and green poster that carries a "San Francisco Poster Co." credit at the bottom. These are bootlegs.
