You will receive a RARE third year Gathering Poster, 1987 and the book 'Portraits Of The Gathering'. The poster is signed and definitely a collectors item. My first visit to photograph the poets was in 1986 for the second gathering. From that body of work 72 portraits were selected to be presented as a poster to commemorate the third gathering for 1987.
The portraits on that poster comprise those poets who were active and instrumental in the revival of cowboy poetry in the early years of the gathering. Their participation during those early years helped establish and build the gathering into the institution that it is today.
The availability of this poster is limited and occasionally appears on e-bay at $300-$350. The dimensions are 25x37 inches. The poster will be shipped in a sturdy heavy duty tube.
A Limited Edition Personal Portfolio, (available only to particiants of this kickstarter campaign) is made up of an introduction and acknowledgement page followed by Five Signatures and presented in a handsome custom lipped clamshell presentation case.
