    Maybe try here.

    Thanks,

    That reprinting by K2 was years ago when he died in France.

    I was lucky, good friend of Doug's helped find one for me and had it shipped yesterday! My luck has returned!

    Same problem 6 years later. Anyone have a line on one? Or willing to make a high-res scan?

    I'm interested in this too. Had a copy on my wall in grad school, but somehow it got lost over the years.

    Take a pic with a 15+mp camera on tripod / post processing will take care of rest and you will have a lot better pic file than any scan - assuming this poster is 2' by 3' ish.

    Not sure of the murky legalities of such a maneuver - it will take subtlety for sure so maybe dd should start a thread on it & fascism's effect on digital images.

    If they are unobtainable elsewhere then I think Doug would be ok with us making copies
    speaking of doug coombs his wife started a cool foundation in his name here in JH. They support skiing for low income kids- basically the hispanic kids in town

    Quite certain it's not legal, but I will make a comparable donation to the Coombs foundation.

    Add in another person who'd like to have one if they ever get made, especially if the proceeds go to the foundation and not to K2.

    I've been looking for this poster for a while now. Would love to get it as well. We should email K2 and tell them to release it again.

    I have a friend who thinks he may have a few. Maybe Emily gets them, and folks bid on them and the money goes to her foundation.

    I'm trying to figure out the best way to do this. My friend is 99% sure he has some posters rolled up in his attic. He said:
    ... I have posters for donations only. We are organisiting a memorila here 3rd of April 2016 for Doug and Chad... (Here being La Grave.)
