This poster by artist Lee Conklin is one of the most requested and well known posters from the series. This stunning black and white illustration exemplifies the artists’ style of hidden and flowing images. The art was so powerful that Santana had the piece reworked for their first album cover. This image is one of the most used examples of 1960’s art in volumes chronicling the genre.
