Jerry Transfigured

Shortly after taking the photograph of Jerry posted below I transformed it to pure black and white using an obsolete photgraphic process, (we didn't have PCs with Photoshop back then !) and then blew it up to poster size and had a thousand copies printed... which I proceeded to sell for a nominal fee outside concert venues. They sold fast, and look great mounted on backing board, matted, and framed. If anyone is interested I still have about a hundred or so of them, which can be purchased as a signed/numbered print, as long as they last. The copper plates used to print the poster size were destroyed by the printer, so... from that cup no more. In the pure black and white version the cymbal behind Jerry could almost be a halo...
