It's a Beautiful Day Poster
Although Bonnie MacLean was no longer the main Fillmore poster artist, she did the calligraphy for this black and white collage advertising an appearance by Ike and Tina Turner in a style reminiscent of her chalkboard-artist beginnings.
The poster was only printed once before the concert. It measures 14" x 21 1/16".
The 2nd printing is on matte stock and has "W 2021" in the lower right hand margin. It was printed in 2021 by Wolfgang's in a 250 copy run. This reprint measures 14" x 21".
During the early days of the Fillmore, MacLean was the most "present" member of the staff. She collected tickets, passed out handbills, blew up balloons and counted money for Fillmore productions. Impressed with her lettering skill on the upcoming attractions chalkboards, Bill Graham surprised her with an easel and art supplies for Christmas, 1967, and MacLean's poster artist career was launched. Untrained in graphic arts, MacLean's early style evolved into ornate, Medieval-Gothic designs. Faces in her posters wore trance-like stares, steady and serene, and evoke the detached spirituality of the sixties.
