From the Billy Apple archive

Edited by Ralph Ginzburg, Avant Garde was renowned for its graphic content by design guru Herb Lubalin. In 1968 the magazine sponsored an antiwar poster competition, which received over two thousand entries from twenty-four countries. Winning entries included a typographic collaboration between Billy Apple and Robert Coburn.
