A poster of Pig Pen and Janis Joplin, 1972

Sold for US$ 720 inc. premium
A poster of Pig Pen and Janis Joplin, 1972
A color photographic print depicting the two musicians in a funny pose; originally shot by photographer Ronald Rakow circa 1968, this image was enlarged into poster-size and mounted to a board. Sadly, Joplin had already been deceased for two years when this poster was printed in 1972, and Pig Pen would follow just a year later. Text along the lower margin reads "847 Janis & Pig Pen Pomegranate Dist. by Thofra P.O. Box 308 Sausalito, Calif. 94965 415/332-9267 Photo: Ronald Rakow." (Please note this piece is somewhat damaged and shows dirt, paper loss, and water damage on its surface, but the main image is not affected.)
