Steal this painting (green)

Abbie Hoffman’s 1971 ‘Steal this book‘ epitomised the counter-culture mentality of the 60’s and went on to detail ways one could fight the man. As homage to the enduring spirit of the counter-culture and the continuing need to stick it to the man we’ve shamelessly appropriated the cover design and given it a little id-iom twist before releasing them back into the world..

I still can’t quite decide what’s the best way to use these… I think the obvious thing to do would be to drop them on the street somehow and see how long they last before someone makes off with them.

It’s an eminently thievable A3 in size and comes from an edition of 2. They’ve been completed using the magic of screen printing, spraypaint and stencils. Signed on reverse.

For further information about us and what we get up to you can visit our flickr and, we may be late to the party but, we’re also on twitter (@thisisidiom).

Cheers
