Neutral Milk Hotel Letterpress Poster - Jeff Mangum Phoenix Theatre RARE

This limited edition poster is 11 x 19 inches, printed on French Paper, 140lb “Speckletone Madero Beach” (flecked) and letterpress style - hand printed by Lady Bones Press. It is limited to a run of 300 posters, signed and numbered by the illustrator, after which the band info will be removed, and it will continue to be printed as an art print.

Illustration by Michael Houghton of Designed by Monkeys as a keepsake gig poster for Neutral Milk Hotel’s appearance at The Phoenix Theater, Petaluma, CA (their last show on the "last tour in the foreseeable future").

I wanted to create something that was a dream-state portrait of Jeff Mangum. I really worked hard on finding the right balance between a straight likeness and something stylized – actually kind of drove myself a little crazy getting it just right. The birds and the roots of his beard are based loosely on the song "Little Birds", which is in the ‘throw your daughter down the well’ tradition of folk music. It’s a really beautiful and harrowing song.

Neutral Milk Hotel’s album Aeroplane Over the Sea is my favorite album of all time. It’s just gorgeous and soaring and has meant a lot to my life. I wanted to try to do something as a tribute to what their music has meant to me.

Poster will be carefully rolled in a 4” tube, sandwiched in tissue paper and craft paper. It is being rolled initially around a 3” tube to avoid any crimping, craft paper is taped, and then tube is removed before inserting into 4” tube.
