GRATEFUL DEAD POSTER AND POSTCARD SET - BG144 - POSTER IS A 2ND. The postcard was only printed once before the concert. It measures 4 x 7. WITH ART BY CONKLIN. Nov 8, 1968 AT THE FILLMORE. The grotesque nature of BG144 played in sharp contrast to the more orderly offerings of other poster artists and may have been a critical comment from the artist. Recalling renaissance paintings of faces fashioned from vegetables and animals, and foreshadowing modern montages composed of odd photographed bits and pieces that form a face, the only bit of wry humor in BG144 came from the smiling skull.
