This is an Original PRINT PLATE of FD-21 "Earthquake" Bo Diddley Big Brother at the Avalon Ballroom (Double Sided Plate) used and owned by FRANK WESTLAKE the owner of the Bindweed Press!

 

The vast majority of the printing plates used to print bill graham presents and the family dog presents posters are in the hands of either a company which holds the copyrights or a museum/archive which holds them as part of their core artistic holdings. It is extremely unlikely that any of these printing plates ever will come on the open market within the lifetime of current collectors even younger ones

 

Do you own a complete set of these posters? So do several dozen other collectors. Do you want something that will make your collection stand out from the others? this printing plate is it. Do you collect only a small number of unique items? Only the very best? This is a unique item the very best.

 Frank Westlake was the printer of this poster and the owner of this printing plate. Now you can own it frame it and hang it on your dining room wall as the trophy piece of your collection. All you have to do is outbid all the other collectors who will be out to own this item which certainly is one of the treasures of the entire 1960’s era.

 

Size: 17.88” x 20.63”
