This is a collection of 3 items: Greg Irons ULTRA SCARCE 1971 1st Printing FOOD STAMP GOURMET & Greg Irons CHECKLIST Books. Greg Irons was one of the great-unsung heroes of the 1960’s psychedelic art scene. Irons was a master underground comix, poster, and tattoo artist. His style was perfect for each of those mediums. Here's a great article on Greg Irons & his internationally famous work as a Tattoo Artist.
