Each poster includes a sturdy, re-usable cardboard tube mailer with plastic caps to protect the poster as you take it from one venue to the next.

About the photo, Mikel Classen writes:

This was shot a few years back in northern Marquette County. That was back when I carried a Pentax and still shot with film. This was taken with a 200 m telephoto lens on 35mm film. I’ve always felt that the wolf is the embodiment of the spirit of the Upper Peninsula. Loyal to its family, yet independent and tenacious, a creature that has overcome all odds to survive, the wolf’s struggle reflects our struggles.
There is no U.P. wilderness without the wolf. To hear the call of the wolf echoing across the untamed landscape is to truly live.
