Happy Kentucky Derby week! In celebration of the most exciting two minutes in sports, we've collaborated with Louisville artist Rachael Sinclair on a decadent and depraved derby poster. Not just any print, an infographic of kick ass Kentuckian Hunter S. Thompson's famous essay on the 1970 Kentucky Derby - ‘The Kentucky Derby Is Decadent and Depraved’. Gonzo journalism's original gangster essay that appeared in Scanlan’s Monthly in June of that year. Traditional like a racehorse.
You’ll notice each silk on this print is symbolic of something from Hunter S. Thompson’s essay - Colonel Quick, Nekkid Horses, Whiskey Gentry, Dust Commander, Old Fitz, Chemical Billy, Inbred Horses, and all other gonzo observations. Quirky like a racehorse.
Printed on French Paper Company 80# speckle tone paper by Thoroughbred Printing in Lexington Kentucky. Quality like a racehorse.
This is a limited edition of 200. We'll be releasing 50 online. Limited like a racehorse.
Print is 20 x 25. Huge like a racehorse.
