Legendary impresario Bill Graham began in January 1966 to commission posters to promote the concerts he was putting on at San Francisco's Fillmore auditorium.

The poster artists followed the revolutionary mandate of the sixties consciousness, creating vivid, irreverent banners that reflected their own sense of poetics, style, and wit.

What resulted were signature juxtapositions of design, lettering, and color that spawned a brand new art form.

Their muse was the cosmic synergy that then abounded, fueled in part by LSD.
