This handbill is signed in pencil by the artist Gary Grimshaw!


Another milestone for us at PAE we are proud to offer the FIRST example of this Original Clash Handbill ever to appear in our auction! This piece was designed by the legendary Detroit artist Gary Grimshaw. Aside from his ability to create brilliant psychedelic works of art the artist was equally talented in layout and graphic design lettering to create some of the most powerful images of the era. 


The Clash were without a doubt a major leader in the British punk rock and New Wave movements of the late seventies and eighties. This museum quality handbill is SIGNED by the artist! Read our blog dated 1/20/18 where we discuss the skyrocketing demand for signed material such as this lot.
