This is a very early and scarce original poster in Museum Quality Condition for a Bob Dylan / Joan Baez east coast tour in 1965! According to The Art of Rock, Dylan wasn't thrilled with the image and it was only used on a very limited basis. This artwork is featured in The Art of Rock plate# 1.101. The high grade 9.4 example you see here is light years brighter than the one photographed in the AOR book, a clear testament to the incredible condition this poster is in!

The Cambridge folk singer/visual artist Eric Von Schmidt created the design. Dylan & Von Schmidt had musical history: The year prior Dylan visited Von Schmidt at his home in Florida and recorded several songs there including an early version of Mr. Tambourine Man. One of Von Schmidt's LPs is exhibited in a pile of records on the cover of Dylan's album Bringing It All Back Home.

Though we see the handbill version of the piece often, the poster is quite rare. Three years ago we sold one similar high quality for over $5K. Bid accordingly!
