Poster has black border. Poster has a drawing of an idyllic scene. The scene contains various fantastical architectural structures, composed of multi-colored faceted pieces. Some of the structures are reminiscent of tents or geodesic domes some appear built into the hillside. Throughout this fantasy city people are shown going about their daily lives. In the background there is a body of water spanned by a suspension bridge with a windmill on it. At the bottom of the image in the foreground there are three human figures. The leftmost, a female, is flying a large kite into the sky that resembles a flying saucer or jellyfish. The kite has the text: "Ökotopia". The bottom of the poster has the text: "Stuttgarter Umweltwochen / Ökotopia 16.Mai - 15.Juni 1980 / Ges�nder. Nat�rlicher Und / sch_ner Leben In Der Stadt". This poster is derived from the subject of Ernest Callenbach's seminal 1975 book Ecotopia: The Notebooks and Reports of William Weston. [LMC]
