Phi Zappa Crappa Toilet Poster

Frank Zappa

Let’s follow up on yesterday’s post about Mimi Berlin SenioR’s 1960s Marriage Pictures More came to light about the interior of the small attic he lived in. This Large poster ‘Phi Zappa Crappa’ was pinned to the wooden toilet door at the attic of Mimi Berlin SenioR. The toilet was very small, the door was open a lot of times, so this fierce, brown poster could also be seen many times. Memories, light the corners of our minds, they do!Phi Zappa Crappa Toilet Poster(image via pinterest.com/pin/305330049708141862/)

There isn’t much information on the graphic design. It is said that many, maybe millions, of variations of the first poster, first made by photographer the Robert Davidson (at the Royal Garden Hotel, London, in 1967) are scattered around the globe. According to the Independent Zappa said about the result of the photo session “They almost immediately gained cult status, a sentiment echoed by Zappa himself in 1983, when stating, “I’m probably more famous for sitting on the toilet than for anything else.” We, at Mimi Berlin, think the latter isn’t true : what do you think; is Frank Zappa more famous for his music or not?
