Our accompanying 1978 paperwork reads: "$935.00. Stylistic simplicity is achieved using the cut paper technique pioneered by ProCreations with its series for the New Orleans Jazz Festival. The dramatic effect forces the viewer's eye to fill in the details left incomplete by the artist. This poster quickly sold out at USD 935.00, and was hailed as an instant classic".
