    In the period between 1965 and 1971 in San Francisco There was an outburst of graphic creativity that is unparalleled in American art. Drawn by a handful of now well-known artists as well as a legion of lesser known ones, this work is known as Psychedelic Rock ConcerT Poster Art. At the heart of the early part of this era, 1966-1967 , was the print shop known as The Bindweed Press.The Bindweed Press was the DBA of a printer named Frank Westlake. Westlake personally printed several dozen of the best-known early San Francisco psychedelic posters including many original printings of the most famous early Family Dog images for concerts at the Avalon Ballroom as well as many posters and handbills for other local San Francisco venues such as Winterland. Among these are the world famous, iconic Skeleton and roses image for the Grateful Dead at the Avalon, Family Dog No.26, Frankenstein, also for the Dead at the Avalon, Family Dog No. 22 and the Zig-Zag man for Big Brother and the Holding company at the Avalon, Family Dog No. 14. All of these bear the bottom margin notation “The Bindweed Press “
     Back in the early 70s, a set of non USA 'pirate' printings were made of some of the most recognizeable posters from the Fillmore and Avalon series, as well as various 60s happenings and concerts. The Bindweed Press in San Francisco was responsible for printing many of the early west coast psychedelic dance posters, including those for The Family Dog.The owner of Bindweed (Chet Helms) authorised re-prints of posters like this to be sold commercially after the actual gig & obtaining 1st prints as opposed to later prints is difficult.  The Bindweed Press was the trading name of Frank Westlake, and he included the Bindweed Press credit on posters that he printed. Westlake fell out with Helms & de-camped to London (taking many original printing plates) where he established the San Francisco Poster Company . These Posters were printed in London from the original plates c' late 1960's-early 70's. Numerous re-prints of these posters circulate in the States but as the "San Francisco Poster Company" posters used the original plates (legally owned by Westlake), these posters have now become collectable in their own right .  These plates were his legal property.  By the mid-1970’s he had reprinted a number of posters in the UK using the original plates, but deleted The Bindweed Press credit and instead inserted the San Francisco Poster Co. credit.  In some instances he used totally different colours for posters, compared with original printings, in other cases he stuck closely to the colours of the original.These posters were all labelled "San Francisco Poster Company" even though they were actually printed in England. You can find listings for these posters in most catalogues of 60s posters, and they are collected along with other legitimate 60s reprints and are way nearer the original to modern gicle reprints
The list includes so far :- COSMIC CAR SHOW - Artist: Mouse , THE GRASS ROOTS,  HUPMOBILE - Artist: Wes Wilson, THE CYRCLE, INVISIBLE CIRCUS - Artist: Dave Hodges, THE DAILY FLASH - Artist: Wes Wilson, THE DAILY FLASH - Artist: Mouse, 13TH FLOOR ELEVATORS - Artist: Mouse, HELL’S ANGELS - BIG BROTHER: Artist: by Gut, real name Allen Terk, JEFFERSON AIRPLANE - Artist: Mouse, SIERRA CLUB WILDERNSES CONFERENCE, COUNTRY JOE - Artist: Rehbock/Wiese, COUNTRY JOE - FINNISH BROTHERHOOD, SPARROW - Artist: Mouse, JAMES COTTON BLUES / QUICKSILVER, P.H.

So long as you are properly aware of the intricate and controversial history of this material, It has long been accepted to buy and/or sell it. These posters are over 40 years old and by virtue of their age and increasing rarity they have attained their own unique collectible attributes..The original printing plates were used to produce the reprint, but the colour schemes are often radically different to the original and oddly on better paper as some of my originals are on almost old cereal packets

Joseph Lee Wormwood Scrubs 23/11/1954 Original artwork
Joe Lee was born in Burley-in-Wharfedale, near Leeds, on 16 May 1901. Winning  a scholarship to Leeds Grammar School, and showed  talent for art , in about 1915, his widowed mother managed to find  money for him to attend Leeds College of Art. Contemporaries included Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth, and Henry Carr. He left the School of Art in 1918, and in 1919 took a  course with Percy V. Bradshaw, sending specimens of his work to London papers.  Lee's first published cartoon appeared in The Bystander in 1920, and in the following year, when still only nineteen, he became political cartoonist on the ailing Pall Mall Gazette, with a Press Gallery pass for the House of Commons. From 1934 to 1966 Lee worked for the Evening News which featured his very popular ‘London Laughs’ series of joke drawings. These were the first non-political topical cartoons in Britain.    £255 inc delivery ex Chris Beetles Gallery
