Power to the People

If you're after an interesting piece of Che Guevara memorabilia from a trip to Cuba, you would probably do just as well to visit Camden Market. However, I was delighted to find this original 1967 screenprint poster in a small bookshop on Obispo in Havana.

Roberto, the genial dreadlocked guy in the store, ushered us through to the dusty back room to show us dozens of fantastic original posters. I picked this one. It originally hung in offices on the Revolution Square as a tribute when Che was killed in 1967. There were about 10 in total and between us we cleared Roberto out.
