Slim pamphlet by the short-lived post-situationist group, who during June 1973 plastered public walls in San Francisco with the messages, "Do You Ever Feel Like Killing Your Boss?," Do You Want To Steal Everything?," "Is There Life Before Death?" and simliar slogans. The pamphlet, dated July 1, discusses this agitprop experiment, and is illustrated throughout with classic situationist collages and 'detourned' comics. "For a few days in June, San Francisco was forced to reveal – if only for a moment – its real face. By the removal of certain veils, it was shown to be like any other city – a place of alienation, of boredom, of misery." Scarce; OCLC finds three copies.
