Red Dog Saloon, Virginia City, NV 6/21/65
Known as “The Seed,” this poster is the granddaddy of psychedelic posters. It was designed by Charlatans members George Hunter and Michael Ferguson to advertise the opening of the Charlatans at the Red Dog Saloon in Virginia City, Nevada in June 1965. This poster, known as AOR 2.1, is the final version with the correct date of June 21, 1965.
These posters were printed in black ink on either white or goldenrod stock and measure 10" x 14". Both are quite scarce, especially in high grade.
