5. The geodesic dome “Dodecahedron” is fine and still attached to the elusive elastic rubber band which is still there and attached as well)

7. The large fold-out Warhol photograph of a rainbow nose is fine.

8. Hunts tomato can is fine.

9. "FOR A BIG SURPRISE!!!" page - Complete - All 8 are present. These are sometimes called blotters or sponges – (Some say they symbolize acid use). This copy also has a laid in paper that looks like a rolling paper the we have never seen before so we left it in.

10. The silver balloon is sticking the inside 1/3 of the spread together as usual. You can still view about 2/3 of the spread. It is interesting that the balloon outline can be seen on the back of the page.

Still well bound! None of the signatures are loose. The entire book is fine and in much better and complete condition than most copies - see photos
