Subject: RE: Obit: Eric Von Schmidt RIP (February 2007)
A very sad day indeed. First Fritz, now Eric.
I just want to add some mention of the book he and Jim Rooney did on the Cambridge/Boston folk scene, "Baby, Let Me Follow You Down." It is a wonderful recreation of what must have been a wonderful moment in history. I read and re-read it with relish. I highly recommend it.
Also want to say how wonderful he was as an illustrator. I actually came to know of him first through his graphic work. Especially the well known Baez/ Dylan poster.
My thoughts and condolences are with his family.
