THe commcecially produced posters coming from the San Francisco presses f were of high qualityt as opposed to lame nationally distributed mass produced products. This lot includes some  examples of very nice prints in amazing mint condition.

Alice in Wonderland with its fantastical plot wild imagery and clear psychoactive references has been embraced by the counter culture nearly since its inception. In the sixties Jefferson Airplane’s “White Rabbit” brought this connection to the very front of our collective conscience and artwork of the time reflects this.
