    GOOD PLUS Condition: some wear, creases from handling, a 1/4" edge tear, upper left corner scraped, bottom right corner has 3 BB sized holes, surface scraping here and there and on the back (from a long gone insect), light age-toning/foxing, the back has some masking tape ghosts and abrasions, overall this original 1967 poster is solid, bright and clean and the colors remain very vivid and bright. It would look fabulous framed. A unique piece.

    A beautiful and evocative image that most perfectly embodies and describes the amazing ethos of the Haight Ashbury in 1967. Artist Mari Tepper (b. 1948) born in the Haight, she designed this poster when she was only 19 years old. Mari also created iconic concert posters for Bill Graham and many other SF cultural and sociopolitical happenings of the day, but because she was a young woman in 1967, her artwork was never popularized - unlike her male colleagues.

    Only FAIR condition, there are a couple big holes at the upper corners (probably from where it was originally hung), lots of other holes and tears throughout, some from handling, some perhaps even from moths (you can see the holes when the banner is held up to the light); there is soiling, especially at the lower section. Nonetheless a still solid poster /banner from the San Francisco International Book Fair poster of 1975.

    Broadside, printed on fine heavy stock paper, deckled top and bottom edges, 15x22 inches.

    FINE condition, bright and beautiful.

    From the Broadside: "Within a very few years of the publication of my Collected Poems (1938)... I renounced further trying the way of poetry... saying: I would write no more poems - and I wrote no more poems... (however) I wrote for (a close friend), in the 1978 Christmastime, a poem, marked as a poem for him only, giving it the title HOW A POEM CAME TO BE. I kept no copy of this privately written and given poem, and forgot the writing and the giving of it... I chanced, recently, to tell my friend of receiving a request for a poem to publish in broadside form from the Lord John Press, indicating my feeling some surprise that Mr. Yellin, the Press's director, should not have been aware that FOR FORTY YEARS there had been NO NEW POEMS of mine. But my friend reminded me that about a year ago there HAD been a new poem - the one I wrote for him; and he urged me to let him release it to me from its private status of being a poem for him only... I give here the poem, given him, to be out in the world..."

    LAURA RIDING JACKSON, 1901-1991, was an iconoclastic American Poet. She left New England at the age of 25 to live with ROBERT GRAVES and his wife, Nancy Nicholson. The triangle did not suit her, and Laura Riding tried to commit suicide in 1927. Thereafter Robert Graves divorced his wife and lived together with Laura Riding in Majorca, France, England and Switzerland, and even went with her when she returned to the United States. They bitterly broke up in 1939. In 1941 Laura Riding Jackson renounced poetry, married Schuyler B. Jackson, and lived quietly with him in Wabasso, Florida, until her death in 1991. In the 60s, 70s and 80s she wrote a number of pieces explaining her reasons for renouncing poetry, but no poetry. This is apparently THE ONLY POEM written by Laura Riding Jackson since 1941.
