Two Grateful Dead front and back cover proofs from a printed program, 1973
Given to Rock Scully by the printing press to proof and authorize, both copies are identical and show the front and back outside and inside covers that went into a program the band had printed up shortly after Ron "Pig Pen" McKernan died (as evidenced by the 'In Memoriam' page devoted to him); back inside cover shows the Grateful Dead Productions masthead as well as program credits (e.g., all artwork was created by Stanley Mouse, Alton Kelley, and Rick Griffin); the original "art ready" color photograph of Pig Pen used for the program is also included.
