This poster is signed in black ink by the artist, the late great Rick Griffin!

Here we have a killer design by the legendary Rick Griffin for the Hog Farm, hosting a series of Thursday night "Open Celebrations" at Cinemateque 16 in Los Angeles during 1969. This second printing poster exhibits "Bindweed Venom" on the Royal can, in place of "Cream Pudding" which was written on the original printings. 

During summer of 1976, a retrospective of Rick Griffin's artwork was held in London at The Roundhouse. Griffin took the original printing plates of this Hog Farm image with him to England, and oversaw printer James Haworth produce a numbered, limited edition run of 3,000. They were humorously presented as "Alcock & Dicks Trading Co" in the lower left corner, and labeled "1976 European Limited Edition". This example here is numbered "0026". 

Signed, Original First Printings of this poster can command high bidding. This SIGNED second printing represents a more affordable way to acquire this fantastic and world famous work of art, with a beautiful signature by the late great artist! This is the FIRST CGC Graded example of the 1976 Limited Edition issue we have ever auctioned!
