Offered here is one of the most highly sought-after original first printing posters in the world of psychedelic art collecting. It is the 26th and most famous image in the Family Dog series and is known as Skeleton & Roses. It features the Grateful Dead and Oxford Circle (precursor to Blue Cheer) playing at the Avalon Ballroom in San Francisco on Sept. 16-17, 1966. 

The original first printing poster was printed on vellum and is approximately 14” x 20”. It;s in very good with wear and tear along the middle right edge, missing lower right corner tip, pinholes in the corners, and top center. The colors are still well-saturated. Here is your chance to own a first printing of what is perhaps one of the most iconic psychedelic poster images from the 1960s.

Here is a short movie of the poster below.
