DescriptionArnold Roth Humbug #7 Cover Original Art (Humbug, 1957). Hubba, hubba -- these fresh Russian spy satellites know a good thing when they spot it! Arnold Roth was one of the first to satirize the now all-too common spy satellites hanging over our heads. On October 4, 1957, the surprise launch of Sputnik 1, the first human-made object to orbit the Earth, took the world by storm. Aside from inspiring the obvious "Space Race" reaction from the US, the launch of Sputnik 1 also had other effects on popular culture. It inspired writer Herb Caen to coin the term "beatnik" in an article about the Beat Generation in the San Francisco Chronicle on April 2, 1958, a few months after this issue of Humbug hit the stands. This landmark Cold War piece has an image area of 10" x 14". The border and logo are mounted on acetate overlays, and the art is in Excellent condition.
