This limited edition poster was published to commemorate the Jimi Hendrix "Pinnacle Concert Series" held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles in 1968. This Artist's Edition was published in 2004 and has been signed personally by the artist, John Van Hamersveld.
Sotheby's Auction House said of the original edition: "One of the very best Jimi Hendrix posters ever designed. This particular poster for the 'Jimi Hendrix & Soft Machine with The Electric Flag and Blue Cheer' concert is a classic. The simplicity of design, and restrained choice of color were just right. It is extremely rare and sought after by collectors."
This is a great opportunity to have a stunning edition of this quintessential rock art masterpiece, signed by its creator, for yourself or as a great gift for a Hendrix fan.
Artist John Van Hamersveld's luminous career includes the creation of hundreds of classic album covers and poster art, among them the Rolling Stones' "Exile on Main Street," the Beatles' "Magical Mystery Tour," and the ubiquitous "Endless Summer" surf movie poster, a classic. John was also chosen by Cream to create the poster, album, and DVD art for their 2005 reunion shows at Royal Albert Hall and Madison Square Garden.
