This HUGE 38” x 54” sized poster exhibits the Velvet Underground & Nico album featuring cover artwork by Andy Warhol. This example was printed during the 70's in England and exhibits German Stamps on the reverse of the poster. In another public auction a restored example of this issue in similar condition sold previously for $1 650.83. 

 

The 1967 album was the first Velvet Underground record ever released and recorded in late 1966 while the band was featured on Andy Warhol's Exploding Plastic Inevitable tour. Warhol also played a major role in the album's production as well as paying for some of the studio recording sessions. This extra large poster is a great tribute to that amazing record.
