About

If you were producing a Broadway play or top Rock and Roll concert in the 1970's, David Byrd was the artist you wanted to create the imagery. He created for Broadway the art for, Godspell, Follies and Jesus Christ Superstar to mention only a few. For the Rock and Roll industry David created all of the iconic artwork for the Fillmore East including their classic and highly valued posters and programs. The Who's "Tommy" art was David's as was The Rolling Stones 1969 World tour artwork, and the 1969 Jimi Hendrix American concert tour, the very first version of the art for the original 1969 Woodstock Music Festival poster was David Byrd's along with dozens of other classic images. In 1975, The New York Times contacted Superstar artist David Byrd to create the "Manhattan Coloring Book" It was to be a coloring book for adults (That they really weren't going to color in as the drawings were very detailed. it was to be a collectors item and a tribute to the city of New York) It sold out rather quickly and the 1975 first edition became a collectors item. I have included an image of the coloring book for reference, it is not included in the sale of this vintage drawing. It featured some of the most important architectural structures in New York City. We are please to offer for sale one of the original 1975 drawings by Mr. Byrd that was used in that collectible book. This drawing is of the Haughwout building at Broadway and Broome. It was one of the early cast iron building facades. This is the original 1975 drawing created by David Byrd in for the Manhattan Coloring book. It is pencil on vellum which measures 14x10" unframed and 20x16" framed it is signed and dated by David Byrd.
