    Description

    Bob Dylan / Joan Baez 1965 Portland, Oregon Concert Handbill. An original concert-advertising paper flyer for Bob Dylan and Joan Baez in Portland, Oregon on Friday evening, April 23, 1965.

    A picture by well-known Dylan photographer Daniel Kramer is the centerpiece of this handbill, and he's credited in small print. The design features a large white space at the top, which some might mistake as a 'tour-blank' area to be filled in, but no, it was intended to look this way, and this flyer is complete.

    This design was also used for handbills and posters to promote a concert by the duo the following night in Seattle, WA, and then it was finished - two different evenings in America's Pacific Northwest, and that was it for this design. Then Dylan (with Baez) was off to England on April 26 on the Don't Look Back European acoustic tour.

    A very scarce piece making its first-ever appearance in a Heritage auction. Measures 7 1/8" x 11" and grades to Very Good condition. COA from Heritage Auctions.


    More Information: Just a month before, Dylan & Baez were being advertised with a flyer designed by Eric Von Schmidt (one of which is also in this auction), but Dylan reportedly didn't like that piece, and the existence of this new design at the end of their joint tour would seem to substantiate that.

    Condition details: Flyer has a pair of creases in the upper left corner, but they don't break the black color. Likewise for the horizontal creases all the way across through "In Concert," and across Baez's chest and Dylan's guitar. Handbills like this were very often folded into thirds for mailing in small standard envelopes back in the day. Toning ‘sunburn' areas are found at the bottom of venue box and the margin underneath, as well as on the verso. Notice also tiny nicks of paper missing in lower left corner and lower right center.
