The Moody Blues Poster

The Moody Blues Poster
Bonnie MacLean retained the style and colorway of BG215 in this dual poster advertising Moody Blues and Ritchie Havens in separate April, 1970 appearances at the Berkeley Coliseum. Old-fashioned and factual in the manner of a wanted poster from a Post Office vestibule, this work has a 3-D edge to it, with Havens' knees planted comfortably outside the picture frame.
Print Variations
The poster was only printed once before the concert. It measures 14 5/16" x 22 9/16".
The 2nd printing is on coated stock and has "W 2023" in the lower right hand margin. It was printed in 2023 by Wolfgang's in a 250 copy run. This reprint measures 14" x 21".
About Bonnie MacLean
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.
