    Beatles John Lennon Art and Letter to Crawdaddy Magazine and Related Group (1975). Crawdaddy Magazine editor Greg Mitchell sent a short letter to John on January 15, 1975, asking him for some sort of contribution -- "poetry, prose, art, photographs (of your kid) or whatever." John returned the letter and wrote on the back "Dear Greg, I've been busy with the baby, try me later in the year, all the best, John (L)" , and added his trademark glasses and face doodle. Included with the note is a color photo print of a signed photo collage (Lennon may actually be in the collage), marked "Just Pissing About" on the back; the original envelope from John, stamped Lennon Music, and a 1975 copy of Crawdaddy with the collage (in Good condition with water stains).Items are in Very Good condition except as noted.
