Triple Johnny Cash Poster


The distinctive Triple Johnny Cash poster is a homage to Andy Warhol and a celebration of the shop's history, especially the relationships developed with its customers and their audiences. When a Cub Scout troop was visiting the shop in the mid-1990's, the shop's manager, Jim Sherraden gave them a little lesson in making ready, the process by which type or photo plates are slowly and carefully 'shimmed up' with thin pieces of paper, until the print is satisfactory, and the blocks are shifted in the press, as needed to be in register with the overall poster design. One of the staff was in the process of printing one of our restrikes, the Cash show poster when Jim intentionally put the photo plate of Cash in the wrong spot on the press and cranked a print through. The end result is one of our bestsellers in the shop!
