Psychedelic Poster Collection

Here are pictures of my small collection of vintage psychedelic rockposters. They are all made by some of the most famous rock poster artists and included in the highly collectable poster series Bill Graham Presents ("BG") and Family Dog ("FD"). The photos are taken with the posters framed and don't really do them justice.
