The New Riders of the Purple Sage Handbill
This Singer poster was an obvious political comment on contemporary events.
The handbill was only printed once before the concert and presents a calendar of upcoming Bill Graham events on the reverse. It measures 4 5/8" x 7".
There were also some pre-concert double-sized postcard mailers printed that were conjoined with the BG272 image (see BG271/272). They measure 7" x 9 1/4".
During his Fillmore era, from 1969-1971, Singer created more posters for Graham than any other artist. Singer's posters are notable for his use of collage, incorporating thousands of images clipped from magazines spanning several decades. He developed a format that included a stunning variety of lettering styles, applying them in close relation to the theme or subject of a poster.
