Art by Gary Grimshaw, image is featured in the Art of Rock book on page 395 (plate 4.194).
Medium-thick flat vellum stock poster is in good to very good (B to B/B+) condition; there are pin holes in all four corners and in the left/right/top/bottom center margins, along with a semi-pronounced horizontal center crease, a 2" diagonal bend in the lower right corner, a touch of handling/edge wear and a couple of tiny pin-prick spots along the bottom margin, otherwise fine.
REALLY cool-looking early 1970's Gary Grimshaw poster from one of the most important political events held in Ann Arbor up to that point.
