Hunter S. Thompsons „Kentucky Derby Is Decadent and Depraved“ turned into a Print

Hunter S. Thompsons erster Gonzo-Essay „Kentucky Derby Is Decadent and Depraved“ als Infografik-Print, die Jockeys auf dem Poster sind alles Charaktere und Anspielungen aus Thompsons Text: Acid Trip, Nekkid Horse, Chemical Billy und Staggering Drunk. Großartig! Ich hab' Kentucky Derby zwar nie gelesen, dafür bin ich allerdings mit seinen Rolling Stone-Jahren fast durch, ganz hervorragendes Buch.

We've collaborated with Louisville artist Rachael Sinclair on a decadent and depraved new print. 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.

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, etc. Good stuff.
