Scarce and desirable original color 5.5 x 9.5 handbill for Bob Dylan and Joan Baez's US tour held between February and March 1965, featuring the now iconic folk rock artwork of Eric Von Schmidt. In fine condition. In 1965, folk singer and artist Eric Von Schmidt was commissioned to create a painting of Dylan and Baez for their tour, which was reproduced on posters and handbills. Dylan was unhappy with his appearance, and ordered that those that had been distributed be recovered and destroyed—making these handbills quite scarce today. This classic portrait has nevertheless come to be regarded as one of the iconic images from Dylan's early folk days.
