Ron Cobb is known particularly for his crisp and trenchant political cartoons, which were once a staple of the underground press. He also designed the ecology flag, contributed designs to a number of movies, and did many other things. However, this enchanting diagram, buried in a copy of the East Village Other (August 27, 1969) is something else: a splendid mandala depicting the variety of human consciousness. I don’t quite understand it yet, but will keep looking at it.
