Rick Griffins Masterpiece “Aoxomoxoa” is one of the most requested Grateful Dead designs of all time. The image was created for a 1969 Avalon Ballroom performance by the Dead and was soon thereafter appropriated by the band as cover art for their third LP. This popular poster has been reprinted twice, this edition being the second reprint. Original First Printings of this poster in the condition offered here can bring several thousands of dollars. This reprint, released in 1982 represents a more affordable way to acquire this fantastic and world famous work of art! 


Also included in this lot is a CGC graded Handbill! This beautiful 9.8 mint example is a post-concert reprint and can be acquired at a relatively low price. It's a great way to own this classic image without paying the high water mark the first original pre-concert printings call for. Are you new to collecting the early eye-appealing Avalon Dead materials by the legendary Rick Griffin? This poster & handbill lot is a perfect place to start!
