"Dig in your basements, attics, garages, and storage boxes and bring your SPECTACULAR examples of California graphic design.

We are looking for: posters, books, flyers, stickers, LSD tabs, (maga)zines, pamphlets, cards, brochures, logos, motion graphics, animation, lettering, fonts, signage, record covers, tickets, ephemera, religious documents, cult graphics, games, buttons, badges, illustrations, titles, signage, lost dog flyers, filming flyers, resumes, photos of spaces, store design and displays, exhibitions, apparel with graphics, as well as articles, correspondence, anecdotes, etc.

With design history experts, graphic design students from around Los Angeles, and other graphic design history devotees on hand we’ll help identify and document California graphic design history."
