The Art of Rock: Posters from Presley to Punk by Paul GrushkinFrom the 1950s through today, here is the complete visual history of the rock concert poster: the funkiest bills advertising Elvis, B.B. King, and Howlin Wolf; the multicolored psychedelic hallucinations promoting the Grateful Dead, Dylan, and the Doors; the deliciously tasteless art for the Sex Pistols, Crime, and the Clash. From the Red Dog Saloon in San Francisco, where the psychedelic scene started, to CBGB, New Yorks punk Mecca, and beyond. 1,500 images searched out world-wide from clubs, attics, and bedrooms—as well as more formal collections—are reproduced in their original blazing colors.
Replete with firsthand history—including exclusive interviews with scores of insiders, poster artists, musicians, and promoters—this is the ultimate high for the rock music fan, required reading for the poster collector, a treasure trove for the graphic artist, and a riotous feast for anyone who digs pop culture.

The drama started out in on ABC and lasted four During the mid to late 60s, as rock music began the transition into psychedelia, art crept into the scene in the form of flyers and posters announcing the venues and bands playing in the San Francisco area. Exclusive rock music photos to buy.
We strive to offer the best selection available of the rare and collectible psychedelic posters that revolutionized poster art worldwide and advertised the live music of legendary bands and performers at venues that included The Fillmore Auditorium, the Avalon Ballroom, and the Grande Ballroom. Poster artists were inspired by the music. Bands like Jefferson Airplane, the Grateful Dead, Quicksilver Messenger Service—and performers like Janis and Jimi—set the bar high; add to that the purple haze of counterculture, acid tests, movement politics, war and peace, a gathering of tribes, a man on the moon. That was the palette from which psychedelic poster art emerged to shape popular culture. They can be enjoyed individually, or investment-grade collections can be built around them.
