Series of 4 lithograph posters, produced by Jorn in 1968 and published by the Galerie Jeanne Bucher (Jorn had exhibited some of his works there the year before). These were meant to be placed on walls during May 68 in Paris. 1,000 copies were printed at the Clot Bramsen and Georges workshop and signed on the stone by the artist. Druckgrafik (320-323) and la Planète Jorn (181)

OCLC locates a single institution with holdings (Yale), though we suspect a few others exist in major museums.

Interesting tidbit: All four posters (all large ones) once greeted visitors to Yale’s Beinecke library. See below (from a documentary on the Voynich Manuscript, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=awGN5NApDy4, 4’47)
