I'm hesitant to put too many pest-related prints in the Agricultural Arts collection, but there are a handful of black and white, well-illustrated pest booklets published by the Department's research branch in the late 1950s and early 1960s that remind me of the DIY punk zines I grew up with. Control of the Potato Flea Beetle in Eastern Canada does that for me, as does the Control of the Colorado Potato Beetle in Canada. As a pair, they give the feeling of being completed by the same person in the same coffee-fueled all-nighter.
