This 46x18" print was printed in 4 runs on a Vandercook 219 Power Proving Press. By printing from both ends of the paper, the artists were able to create a print twice as long as the machine was originally intended to produce. Therefore, though these are only two-color prints, they actually traveled through the press 4 times to achieve the desired result. The poster celebrates the 9th Anniversary of the Ponderosa Stomp and lists all performers and sponsors by name.
