Our 1966 Volkswagen Kombi 'Peace Bus' art print captures symbols of the hippie movement of the 1960s and early 70s. The Type 2 VW Kombi was a favourite of those that lived life on the road. The first Kombis rolled off the assembly line in 1949 and the design didn't change much until 1967. The 1967 and later models adopted a more angular profile. The early models are distinctive for their curved profile and the chrome side trim that runs back to front, ending in a large 'V' pointing down to the front bumper.
I grew up with older siblings that were all-in on the 60s peace movement. Some of their friends drove Kombis. As well, as a kid that loved to doodle, and I remember constantly drawing peace signs on my school workbooks and binders. All that time drawing symbols and type by hand was really setting me up for my future career as a graphic designer. This print shines up my memories and early influences.
