(SOLD): RUBLI, Federico. Yo Estuve en Avandaro.

(Mexico): Trilce Editions / Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico / Fondo Editorial Estado de Mexico, 2016.  First edition.  Folio.  Two volumes.  Introduction by Luis de Llano.  Amazing documentation of the Mexican ‘Woodstock’; Festival Rock y Ruedas de Avándaro, was a historic Mexican rock festival held on September 11–12, 1971, on the shores of Lake Avándaro.  Mexican hippies, called “jipitecas” had created a multidisciplinary movement called La Onda and the festival was a celebration of their beliefs in life, youth, ecology, music, peace, drugs and free love.  Over 200,000 attended to the indignation of the oppressive government who responded by forcing rock music underground, barring clubs, cafes, and concert halls from booking bands, and giving way to the age of the hoyo fonqui – illegal concerts held in abandoned warehouses and promoted in private.  Divided into two volumes, one containing text by Federico Rublio, and the other photographic images by Graciela Iturbide.  Both volumes in very good condition housed in publisher’s thin card slipcase.  Super cool.
