This RUN is the second printing from 1996 and is number 165 of 500.
This is probably one of Gary Grimshaw’s best designs, as well as one of the most popular Grateful Dead posters. The whimsical design with intertwined guitars and flying hearts is like a comic book illustration. It is unknown what the original print run was, but owing to the scarcity of this poster today, it could not have been very large. This poster was reprinted by Phil Cushway as part of his PCL series in a limited edition of 500 pieces.
The original poster was printed on white stock and measures approximately 16 5/8 x 22 inches.
The reprint poster measures approximately 20 x 26 inches and is hand-signed and numbered by Gary Grimshaw.
