Our 106th auction is without a doubt, one of our most diverse and interesting to date with contributions from more consigners than we have ever featured in a single auction!

Highlights include:

The historic Frank Westlake Collection. Frank Westlake was the owner of the Bindweed Press, a printer located in the Noe Valley in San Francisco. Chet Helms knew Frank and hired him to print the Family Dog posters numbered 4 through 40. Frank also printed posters for concerts at The Jabberwok and other Bay Area venues.

Included in the offering are 4 special Family Dog posters that Frank custom printed for himself on special paper and which he displayed in his studio. Each is designated unique by noted concert poster historian, Eric King. The collection also includes many original printing plates for some of The Family Dog's early and most iconic posters. These one of a kind items are true pieces of psychedelic history and the opportunity to acquire them will never be repeated.

Rounding out the collection are two highly desirable and ULTRA RARE Black Panther posters. It is possible that Frank printed these radical Civil Rights posters, without wanting to be named the person behind them. Everything in this collection was carefully chosen, saved, and moved by Frank from California to Arkansas before his death in 2003. The collection has been consigned by his family.
