Presenting for the first time in our auction, the very FIRST poster issue of the legendary Osiris Visions Series (the image is OA 101 in the series). This was a promotional poster issued for the UK band, The Soft Machine in 1967.

 

The posters of Hapshash and the Coloured Coat are arguably the most attractive concert posters ever made. They advertised shows at London’s UFO club, the brainchild of legendary producer Joe Boyd and John Hopkins (co-founder of the International Times). The UFO became the hub of Psychedelic Rock at the time in London and was the home of some of the very earliest Pink Floyd concerts.

 

These LARGE silk-screened posters were produced in the UK by the Osiris Visions Printing Company. They were printed on thin paper and because of their size, the posters damage easily. This copy is in stunning condition.

 

Hapshash posters have been widely pirated, so it's important to only buy from reliable dealers with a solid return policy. 100% original condition.
