Hey Griffin fans! We are pleased to offer this Rick Griffin designed poster for the first time in our auction! Alfred E. Newman became the popular logo of Mad Magazine from the 1950’s and continued to be an influence on 1960’s psychedelic poster artists. This was produced as a promotional poster for the band “Man” issuing their 1974 LP “Slow Motion” on United Artists Records & Tapes. This is the slightly more common version of this poster since the "full Alfred faced" posters were only printed in extremely small quantities. This "half face of Alfred" we have here was printed in larger quantities to promote the LP release since MAD MAGAZINE's Bill Gaines did not approve of the use of Alfred's face in full to appear on the final promo poster. Scarce these days even in this format!
