Jack Kerouac - The Legacy
Larkspur, Jan Kerouac Benefit Fund, 1995. An attractive poster, designed and printed by noted poster artist Alton Kelley -- who designed many of the famous psychedelic posters of the 1960s in San Francisco.

A series of fundraising events were organized in San Francisco, which included appearances and performances by a number of people who had been closely connected to Kerouac and the poets and artists of the Beat generation and later the Sixties counterculture.
