Collection of punk icon Patti Smith's personally-owned and -worn clothing, donated by her to Boston Building Resources for their annual fundraising efforts. The lot is accompanied by a handwritten note on a personal notecard, signed by Smith, in full: "These articles of well worn clothing that saw the stage and street through me have been donated to Boston Building Resources for a fundraiser benefitting their benevolent missions." The personal wardrobe items include: - Patti Smith's well-worn pair of brown suede Prada boots - Patti Smith's well-worn pair of light blue Diesel jeans - Patti Smith's screen-worn black-and-purple striped short-sleeve shirt, as seen in her interview with Charlie Rose on March 23, 2000 Additionally includes five pinback buttons, signed hardcover copies of her books M Train and Year of the Monkey, a glossy 4 x 6 photo of Smith holding a camera, and a fantastic poster collection, with sizes ranging from to 10 x 14 to 25 x 38. Three posters—for appearances/exhibitions at the Art Market Gallery (1995), CBGB (1997), and the Andy Warhol Museum (2003)—have been signed in ink by Patti Smith. The unsigned posters include: three broadsides of Smith's poem 'People Have the Power,' a 1997 Winter Tour poster, and a promo poster for her 1998 book Patti Smith Complete. In overall very good to fine condition, with expected wear to the clothing, and some scattered creasing, small folds, and edgewear to some of the posters. A unique archive of personal materials from the 'poet laureate of punk rock.'
