A Long Strange Trip

"BG101 was Lee Conklin's first poster for Bill Graham. Conklin sketched the lettering around a drawing he'd already completed, and the design bore little symbolic relation to the advertised performers. The poster was printed in original black and white, unusual for the time since Graham instructed his artists to "... make it bright!" The entwined hands gave a taste of the bizarre, psychedelic art Conklin would go on to produce."
