This week we received our copy of ”Split Fountain Hieroglyphics : Psychedelic Concert Posters From The Seattle Area” this book was highlighted here a few weeks ago. We were impressed by this new look at the psychedelic posters from the Seattle area in the 1960’s.
The book is beautifully illustrated with rarely seen treasures from the Pacific Northwest. This publication points out the diversity of regional concert poster art from the era. These type posters are tough to find as they were originally printed in ridiculously low quantities. This brings to mind another recent publication, “Home Grown”- Austin Music Posters from 1967-1982. This great looking book is another indispensable volume that puts a microscope on the concert advertisements that were culled from the rich history of Texas poster scene. The book can be purchased here.
These books highlight the growing awareness and thirst for information relating to vintage concert posters. As the interest continues to build for these posters, we will surely see more helpful resources being published to allow collectors to expand their knowledge and passion of this world class collectible.
