    Description

    Beatles-John Lennon/Yoko Ono Unfinished Music No. 1: Two Virgins (Apple/Track, 1968). Rolled, Fine/Very Fine. Promotional Poster (28.5" x 22.5").
    The first of a series of three Apple Records-released experimental/avant-garde albums recorded by John Lennon and Yoko Ono, Two Virgins featured incredibly controversial (for the time) cover art, showing the couple completely nude. Here is an equally controversial and very rare promotional poster for the album, showing both the front and back covers - the couple nude from both front and back angles - with the quote "When two great Saints meet it is a humbling experience. The long battles to prove he was a saint." Few of these posters were produced in the day and far fewer have survived. The unfolded poster shows light creasing, faint smudges, and minor edge toning.


    Estimate: $600 - $1,200.
