This poster was only printed once before the concert. It displays a significant amount of ink variation throughout the run, noticeable in the darker to lighter shades of background green and black to brown inking. It measures 14" x 21".

About David Singer

During his Fillmore era, from 1969-1971, Singer created more posters for Graham than any other artist. Singer's posters are notable for his use of collage, incorporating thousands of images clipped from magazines spanning several decades. He developed a format that included a stunning variety of lettering styles, applying them in close relation to the theme or subject of a poster.
