An original, vintage, poster, for an exhibition about the French poet Guillaume Apollinaire held at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, London, 1968, designed by Michael English and Nigel Waymouth (collectively known as Hapshash and the Coloured Coat). In the late 1960s, English & Weymouth created psychedelic posters for many of the English bands of the time, and decorated and advertised Nigel Waymouth's King's Road boutique, Granny Takes a Trip. They also designed for concerts held at the UFO club and Saville Theatre, and for underground magazine Oz.

The poster border is decorated with a poem by Christopher Logue (1926-2011).
