text at the bottom of the poster:
" At the bottom of my poster, I wrote a brief description:
“Skull and Roses” originally appeared in 1913. Drawn by Edmund Joseph Sullivan (1869-1933), known as E.J. Sullivan. He was a British book illustrator who worked in a style which merged the British tradition of illustration from the 1860's with aspects of Art Nouveau. In the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, first published in 1913, among many fanciful and many black and white drawings, he used images of skeletons. One such E.J Sullivan illustration of a skeleton was used by 60's poster legends Stanley Mouse and Alton Kelley for a Grateful Dead poster in 1966, and later for an album cover in 1971. Here it surfaces again, hand drawn in my style. Apologies to all those "eye-conic" artists... love EMEK... and your friends at WEEN."
