Do-It-Yourself Beatnik Kit

Pasadena CA: Magic Wand, 1959.


Approximately 8" x 10". Cardboard box with humorous illustration of beatniks. Glued on the inside of the box is a goatee, instant coffee, black-rimmed glasses, a little booklet entitled "Poetry for Jazz," a Zen exercise, an "unemployment" card, etc. Box is a bit soiled and worn, the pin has come loose from one earpiece of the glasses, although they seem to be holding firm in the box. An amusing curiosity.
