[The kind they do to commemorate various occasions]. My idea is full-size of him because, as word got around, the images would become so many. We could add words like LOVE and Happy 75th Birthday, Leonard.

I was looking back through the threads that led up to the project to thank whoever it was that came up with this wonderful idea and I found a post from you on the thread 75th Birthday dated May 15. It must be you Lizzy!

I'll be doggone, Pam. It looks like it was me :shock: . Thanks, too, Pam, for doing the research. I was thinking about it and wondering, but had no idea where to even start :? .

And, there I am, big as life, contradicting my later conclusion that Happy 75th Birthday ought not be included :lol: :roll: .

Well, at least one of us still has a good memory... and at least I finally got it sorted in my own mind about the 75th and Birthday ideas :roll: :lol: .

I am so happy with the final version of the poster--and really glad my picture got edited in!!! Thank you all for a magnificent effort! Wish I could be in Barcelona on the 21st.....but, alas, not to be. I count myself as very fortunate to have been to two LC concerts -- 2008 in Montreal, and 2009 in Boston -- both wonderful wonderful experiences. Barcelona will be very special indeed.

bridger, I think it is 19.68 x 27.55 inches full size.
My photography friends use an online photolab called mpix.com that does a good job at a reasonable price. They charge about $25. for a 20x30"poster and have many options for presentation. http://mpix.com/PrintPricing.aspx

I've been missing for a few days ( small procedure in hospital ) so this is the first chance I've had to come online since Friday afternoon.
To my great joy, I see the poster has been edited, and I am now included :D
THANK YOU so so much - it means a lot to me.
You've made an aging LC fan very happy.
Kind Regards, Joan.

Just back from Wales and delighted and excited to see the poster. It is so great. I found this Irish site to get a poster so it looks easy enough for us all to do

Mary –
It was not life threatening, but who knows if I would push the envelope little bit farther trying to make Barcelona……so it is obvious now that I will not be there physically but I will join you all on that special day in my thoughts. I still have my ticket and I am not going to sell it or give it away, it is my Birthday present for Leonard.

Greetings,

Roman

Thanks to all who were involved in this project. Thank you for confirming that no one was missing.

It is such a wonderful way to say to Leonard Cohen how much we admire him.

Take a bow - it is a work of art.

Thank you for your collective efforts on our behalf.

Counting down the hours to Barcelona.

In song.
