It is with great joy that we offer this opportunity to own an affordable CGC authenticated and graded Reprint of one the most important and famous concert posters ever created. The FD 26 is without question one of the “Holy Grails” in the entire Psychedelic Concert Poster genre. This issue is on everybody’s top 3 lists of “most desirable” posters.
This world famous piece of art was designed by the legendary 1960’s concert poster artists Stanley Mouse and the late Alton Kelley. The story of Mouse and Kelley searching the stacks at the San Francisco library for an appropriate illustration for the poster is well documented. The duo discovered this illustration by 19th century artist Edward Joseph Sullivan for an edition of the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam.
We have sold Original First Printings of this poster for over $50 000! This lot offers you the same iconic world famous art at a much more affordable price level!
