A limited edition tribute poster to the Greek poet Kostas Varnalis (14 February 1884 – 16 December 1974), created for the commemoration of the 40 year anniversary of his passing.
Ta Mounakia (The Little Cunts) was his last poem. It was written in December 1974, a few days before his death.
He was a teacher, a journalist, a member of the greek resistance during the WWII and a dedicated Marxist.
He was awarded the Lenin Peace Prize in 1959, but was sent in exile for his beliefs, later, during the time of dictatorship in Greece.
He died in Athens on 16 December 1974, shortly after the end of the dictatorship.
