    Rick Griffin Softcover - First Printing (G. P. Putnam's Sons, 1980). Long out of print until just recently, copies of this scarce first print Paper Tiger art book by Gordon McClelland are highly prized by fans of this great artist. Covering Rick's work from his early surf art with Murphy, through the Rock Show posters, and underground comix, to his later religious artwork, this book is 8.5" by 11" with 98 pages loaded with high quality reproductions of artwork, most in full color. This copy is in particularly impressive condition, like new, defect-free, and apparently never read. This book's imaginative art and superior production quality are truly inspirational, and will undoubtedly please the winner of this lot.
