Sun Ra artwork?

A friend who owns a local record store recently purchased a large LP jazz collection from a man in Chicago.  There were a few Sun Ra albums on Impulse - he told me that when he pulled them from one of the boxes of records, this piece of artwork fell out.  Apparently, it was sandwiched between two LPs.


It reminds me a bit of some of the Claude Dangerfield covers but I couldn't tell him if it was related to Sun Ra or not.  I'll try to attach a scan of it to this email.  If for some reason it doesn't come through to the list and anyone is interested, please feel free to email me off-list and I'll send it to you privately.


You'll see that it is a single color (green) block-type print on a small piece of paper similar to construction paper - approx. 8 inches by 5 inches. 

I would love to know if this is something the Arkestra might have produced or if there is anything about it that confirms that it is definitely not related...


Thanks!
