Unbound. Large black and white vintage photograph of the western author and screenwriter Tom Blackburn, playing the banjo, by poet and beat-era anthologist Arthur W. Knight. Image size approximately 13.5" x 16.5", mounted on artist board. A little wear to the mount, else fine. Inscribed by Blackburn to Arthur Knight on the image: "To Arthur: Who is an artist, a gentleman, and a man of impeccable tastes. Affectionately, Tom." Knight took up photography as a teenager and had some success with literary subjects: his photos appear on more than 200 dustjackets. He later became involved in the beat and counterculture scene and with his wife Kit Knight edited and published numerous works. Blackburn wrote several western novels, and wrote extensively for television and film. A large and attractive vintage print, inscribed to the photographer.
