Type Handbill
Notes Randy Tuten was hired by Bill Graham in January, 1969 and immediately started to work his transportation themes into concert posters. BG154 featured a train station, a bus stop and an ocean liner. "There really isn't any heavy meaning in my posters," said Tuten. They were "... a combination of what I like and what fit."
Print Variations
The handbill measures 4 5/8" x 7 1/16" and displays a calendar of upcoming Bill Graham events on the reverse. It was printed before the concert.
There were also some pre-concert double-sized mailers printed that were conjoined with the BG155 image. They measure 7 1/16" x 9 1/4".
