“Avant Garde” Art Magazines – One Features Picasso’s Erotic Gravures, 1969 and the Other, John Lennon’s Erotic Lithographs. 1970

From the cover of Picasso’s Erotic Gravures: “This special issue of Avant-Garde is devoted entirely to one subject, a series of erotic gravures or engravings by Pablo Picasso, the pre-eminent artist of our time. They are intended to stand, as Picasso himself has said, “As an abiding celebration of life itself”.

The issue featuring John Lennon also includes an article on Gustav Klimt, other writings, and loads of fascinating 1970s advertising.

FIRM Price:  $20.00 for both.  Price includes 5.5% State of Maine sales tax.

Condition:  Used, in fair to good condition.

FCFS.  Sorry, no holds without payment in advance via PayPal (see below for purchase options).  We don’t use any other cash or money app.

Local Pick Up Available: 

Auburn.  This item is located at a private home in Auburn, and can be seen there by appointment, which ordinarily would be on weekends only.  Please send an email to Linda at HeritageCollectiblesMaine@gmail.com.  These are not listed on Facebook’s Marketplace because their algorithms would probably say the magazines “violate community standards”.

Payment Through This Website:  This site supposedly offers the option of paying directly but there’s some kind of weird glitch and payment info for every new item posted somehow auto-populates to every previous item.  Since that’s obviously wrong, I’ve had to eliminate that option on most items.  My apologies!  Please connect with me via heritagecollectiblesmaine@gmail.com for purchase info.  Because my primary business is non-stop and demanding, I probably won’t get back to you until early morning or late evening. (More apologies!)

In memory of my beloved husband John K Snyder… 20 Sept 1956 – 21 Oct 2016.

He loved our shops, especially the section we called Heritage Books, Maps & Ephemera – that was his baby.  Johnny was an avid reader, who loved the feel of real books in his hands… history was his forte, but in true Renaissance Man fashion, John knew a lot about a great many subjects.  He would often be so fascinated by a book he was reading that he would excitedly read aloud passages to me, so we could discuss the ideas contained therein.

He loved me like crazy, and oh how I loved him.

Follow our blog at https://warrior-project.org, in honor of my husband, and all others who have been lost to internal demons that in the end, overwhelmed them.

All of the profits after expenses from Heritage Collectibles, Books & Maps will go to help fund The Grief Warrior Project, a suicide prevention drop-in and counseling center in the process of being developed, although it has been in hiatus during the pandemic.  I’m hoping to begin working on this again during the spring of 2022. 

(Please Note: The Grief Warrior Project is in no way intended to be reflective of, or piggy back off, Wounded Warriors which serves those military personnel wounded after September 11, 2001.  Like too many others, John was a warrior long before then.)
