ANT FARM: Inflatocookbook. 1973 (1968).
Unpaginated. B/w illustrations throughout. Wrappers. 28x20 cm. Self-published, San Francisco, CA., July 1973. Second printing (1st: 1968).
"The experiences that qualified us as 'Inflatoexperts' occurred over an 18 month period in which we designed, built, and erected inflatables for a variety of clients and situations. Charley Tilford showed Ant Farm how to make fast, cheap inflatables out of polyethylene and tape and support them with used fans from Goodwill. That was in the fall of 1969. The first one built was the largest, a 100' x 100' white pillow that was built for the ill fated Wild West Festival in San Francisco, then after being turned down for Stewart Brand's Liferaft Earth Event, finally had its day at Altamont. There followed a year in which we built numerous demo-inflatables at schools, conferences, festivals and gatherings around the state of California and beyond."
