Coming from the gallery and art dealer world in the late 1960s, we were enthusiastic about the new concept of multi-art and multi-print.
We were one of the first in Stockholm, Sweden to open a wholesale and a Poster shop back in the 60s. That meant importing from all new and interesting poster producers from the UK and the US. We worked enthusiastically to the middle of the 70’s when we got tired of pictures and art, and started working with importing and selling silk screen printing equipment and did consulting work for mail-order companies. We initially did not want to sell the stock as we thought the posters were so good and had an artistic value. Some years ago we decided to start selling the posters again, so we set up this website.
We’ve stockpiled over a 1000 posters in original mint condition in a storage facility with controlled lighting and temperature. The posters although mostly in mint condition, vary slightly in their conditions. You can gauge the quality of the posters by checking out the condition guide. Please feel free to use the product enquiry form on each poster page if you have any questions.
Psychedelic Rock Posters
This web shop features a rare collection of vintage art and psychedelic rock posters from the 1960’s and 70’s. All of the rare posters available for sale on this site are not reproductions but originally printed in the 60’s using lithography and silkscreen. Some are still rolled in their original packaging, most are in perfect condition and there are only limited quantities available.
A new era of art was created in Europe during the 1960’s and 70’s led by artists among other Martin Sharp, Alan Aldridge and Michael English, inspired by famous classic artists such as Vincent Van Gogh and the at the time contemporary Pop Art movement. The posters have strong, rich and saturated colors, elaborate typography and powerful graphic icons and symbolisms are among the many distinguishing hallmarks that set them apart. Their art gained immediate attention which influenced magazine art covers and music album covers.
By far the most notable works of art were the posters that these artists created. The artists wanted to share their psychedelic experiences through their artwork, a theme that appealed to a younger generation of sex, drugs, and, rock and roll. They were distributed at concerts and sold at local stores, under the ideal to spread good art for everyone to enjoy.
Collectibles and Rarities
To keep costs low, silkscreen or lithograph was used to print the posters. The posters are now vintage works of art and are true limited collectibles. Notably, most posters are not signed, as the artists themselves did not anticipate their future value as vintage art posters.

These galleries are hand-picked collections, for those who are interested in more than a single poster.
