Recently, we read that The New York Times has started an ongoing Tumblr project to post their photo archive; it’s called the Lively Morgue and it’s pretty swell. We found this treasure right away: a little bit of 60’s fashion brilliance: a dress that can become a poster. Here’s the description:
March 4, 1968: “Don’t call them paper dresses,” began a report about a line of disposable dresses that could be reimagined as posters. The one seen here features Cape Kennedy. Another? An Allen Ginsberg poem.
An Allen Ginsberg poem???? We HAD to see THAT dress with a Ginsberg Poem and found it here (it was designed by British fashion designer Harry Gordon):
…wanna read the poem?…
…or put it on your wall?
