Frank Kozik "Publish or Perish" 1996 Power Computing Seybold poster

"You can take my Mac when you pry my cold dead fingers off the mouse!"
This poster is a very rare and collectible silk screened original print by the famous rock poster artist Frank Kozik. He did a series of prints for the Power Computing company that were part of their guerrilla marketing campaign to "fight back for the Mac" in 1996 and 1997.

The original owner had this to say about the poster: "As you can see this is the one with the girl and the gun and an American flag uttering the greatest line in Mac history! I picked up this one at the P-C booth at the show, it was a very cool and defiant giveaway from the "darkest days" of Apple, some say these were the spark that brought them back from the brink."
"The poster is printed on very heavy paper stock, and is in perfect display condition. I carried it around all day at the show, so it has a little surface grime on the back of the print, but the front is in perfect condition. It was printed on a paper that was not acid free, so it has started to turn a very slight shade of off white (I'm a comic geek, so I notice these things) this has no effect on the printed side. It has been in a tube for the past 14 years so the colors are vibrant and fading. It is 20"x30" and will frame up beautifully, and look as good as the day it was printed."

The poster (shown above in photo taken March 2011 - click it for full size photo) is now in a plastic frame in a room with no direct sunlight and can be picked up in Nelson BC or returned to the cardboard tube and mailed worldwide insured. It is priced for the collector at $345 and that includes insured postage.
