The poster advertises a May 1, 1966 signing at the “Discovery Bookshop” located at 245 Columbus Avenue in SF, California. Farina had died the previous afternoon in a motorcycle accident in Carmel, California the night before this signing. Apparently, he was planning to travel from Monterey County to SF the following day. The broadside has the following language. The broadside is printed on a giant orange sheet of fancy paper. It looks like it was printed on some kind of letter or hand press. Been Down So Long is considered a classic of 1960’s counterculture literary history. This broadside measures about 15 3/4 inches tall by 11 3/4 inches wide. Farina was a friend to Bob Dylan and a brother-in-law of Joan Baez. Please see my images for details on this great poster.
