Grateful Dead Window Card 1960s Aoxomoxoa by Rick Griffin

A famous, classic, legendary concert poster for the Grateful Dead, drawn by iconic San Francisco poster artist Rick Griffin. Hard to believe this was designed just to sell tickets for one weekend of concerts in January 1969, but the Dead made it much more permanent by subsequently using it as the cover for their Aoxomoxoa album later that year. (P.S. Despite what I say, Rick did not invent the term “aoxomoxoa.”) There’s a lot going on in this poster’s artwork, all enthusiastically discussed by collector Pete Howard of PosterCentral.com (phone 805-540-0020, email pete@postercentral.com). If you’re as taken with psychedelic posters like this as I am, be sure to see more on this page located right here on my web site: http://www.postercentral.com/psychedelic.htm
