This poster is signed in ink by the artist Bob Masse!


We are pleased to offer this rare Bob Masse designed relic for the FIRST TIME in our auction! This piece was produced during the EARLIEST phase of the artist's concert poster artwork career! It hardly ever shows up for sale due to a relatively low print run and EXTREMELY LIMITED distribution at the time. Entitled "FISHERWOMAN IS HER NAME CATCHING A MAN IS HER GAME" this Original Promotional Poster was issued in 1967 by New Syndrome Records. It features full color vertical imagery rendered in Masse's classic Alphonse Mucha / Art Nouveau style. There were no reprints of this issue produced and less than 3 examples have surfaced trading hands over the past 30 years. ULTRA RARE! 


Bob Masse is one of rock's most seasoned and prolific poster artists. He is perhaps best known in the collecting world for his design of the July 1967 Grateful Dead concert at Vancouver’s Agradome. His work has been hunted by collectors for decades and remains one of the most celebrated artists of the era. This SIGNED specimen is in super clean / pinhole free condition! Read our blog dated 1/20/18 where we discuss the skyrocketing demand for signed material such as this lot!
