This poster is signed in blue ink by DONOVAN!


What a beauty! Big-O posters were UK style commercial posters that were created by some of the best artists of the day. Martin Sharp was one of the major contributors to the series. This beautiful, reflective FOIL piece "Sunshine Superman" produced for Donovan is from that incredible series and was originally advertised in OZ magazine. We don't see these large issues surface nearly often enough, and when we do, they are conditionally challenged most of the time.


Martin Sharp posters always enjoy top demand in any condition, and this incredible piece of art rendered on silver foil is no exception! If you like your posters to exhibit FULL psychedelia, then this is one lot you should not pass up! Foil posters are very popular with collectors and it's no secret the foil magnifies even the smallest of flaws. This very popular poster, SIGNED by the Hurdy Gurdy Man himself - DONOVAN - is far cleaner than the numerical grade indicates, see details below.
