This stunning and highly sought after translucent poster by Bob Fried is not a concert poster but rather a very early 1967 Grateful Dead promotional poster. It is a very popular design and is featured in the Art of Rock plate 2.190. Just 500 posters were issued and very few survive today due to the extremely fragile and brittle nature of the acetate on which it is printed. Most that have survived are severely cracked or exhibit major sun damage as they were displayed in windows where the sunshine could best display the spectacular translucent design. This poster measures 15 ¾” x 20 ½” and has no flaws. There is however a slight curl to the poster.is An heirloom item that will be a highlight of even the finest Grateful Dead poster collection. *****This poster is available for inspection at out gallery by appointment.*****
