Now you can see just how beautiful these rock posters are. Each poster in the Fillmore series is presented in full color. An excellent tool to guide you in your purchases, or just help you to enjoy these works of art. Excellent information on the artists and some cool insights into the people and the place that was the Fillmore west.

Format: Paperback
The psychedelic posters from the late 1960's are classic and very much a part of rock history. These posters were commissioned by Bill Graham, who ran the Fillmore East and West, and other venues. The posters were beautiful and colorful and psychedelic. They were carefully created and used to promote the concerts, but what makes them so amazing is that all this work to promote only a few weekend concerts, which typically featured three or four bands playing on Friday and Saturdays. Never again would such works of art capture the moment. This book tells you about the artists and how they came to become Fillmore artists, and of course full color reproductions of the Fillmore posters are prominently featured through the book. If you love the posters, you'll love the book.

As a person who attended some of the shows represented by the posters, I loved the book. It brought back many, many memories and inspirations. The book captured the essence of Bill Graham as an entrepreneur and, as it turned out, supporter of the arts.

Not a book for everyone, but if you were there, or you think you wanted to be there, this is a great value.

The rating is for the ebook version. I would give the paper version 5 stars. I own the paper version and wanted the electronic version to study on the go. Imagine my surprise at finding the book was not in the glorious psychedelic colors of the original but in bad black and white. There is no mention of this in the description and I feel ripped off. So buyer beware

This is the most comprehensive collection of psychedelic art I could find. Remember a time when commercial design came from the heart to the pen. No computer enhanced 3-D images. Just wavy brush strokes and colors bold enough to get you high. Pick it up, and trip out.

This zeros in on what the sixties meant to me. A period of artistic creativity without bounds and limits. One giant leap for mankind...I used to sit in art class and try to copy the lettering in some of these psychedelic posters and it was hard. And to think these San Francisco artist were so prolific as to produce a new one or two every week. I was in awe of this period and love to look back on that scene. Thanks to the Bill Graham estate for compiling this tomb from the ancient ones that came before us.

There is not enough that can be said about this fantastic book about the art and stories emanating from one of the headquarters from that time and place. Bravo Bill Graham and the Fillmore East and West and all the amazing artists that brought it into the light.
