1968 The Electric Kool Aid Acid Test Tom Wolfe First Printing Hardbound Book DOUBLE SIGNED Tom Wolfe and Stewart Brand
We are pleased to offer this ORIGINAL printing of Tom Wolfe's The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test! The classic nonfiction book was released in 1968 and follows the experiences of Ken Kesey and his Merry Pranksters traveling across the United States in their psychedelic school bus called Further. It is essential reading for anyone interested in the 1960s counterculture movement, which is all-important to the work we do here at PAE. The book's cultural significance and importance in the literary world cannot be overstated.
This original copy is signed by author Tom Wolfe as well as Stewart Brand. Brand was one of Kesey's Merry Pranksters and is mentioned in the book frequently. Additionally, Brand was one of the organizers of the 1966 Trips Festival, an event that marked the beginning of the counterculture movement in San Francisco. He was also responsible for creating the Whole Earth Catalog, an American counterculture magazine, and The WELL, one of the first online communities. The inclusion of these two signatures make this book an unbelievably unique collector's item!
