1601 West Evans, Denver, CO 12/29-31/67
Another superb design by Rick Griffin, this poster was produced for a show at 1601 West Evans in Denver, Colorado that featured The Doors. There are two versions of this poster—one with a red triangle in the upper left corner, and one with a black triangle.
The original poster was printed on uncoated index stock and measures approximately 12″ x 21″. The triangle in the upper left corner is red and serves as a background for the Family Dog logo.
The second print poster was printed on index stock and measures approximately 12⅝″ x 21 ″. The triangle in the upper left corner is black and red. The stock that was used for this printing has a slight sheen to it when viewed from the back.
The postcard comes in many varieties, all of which measure approximately 5″ x 7″. There are too many varieties to list here, so we list only the three major types:
The Type A card has a “place stamp here” reverse.
The Type B card has a bulk rate permit on the back.
The Type C card has a bulk rate permit on the back and was mechanically addressed and sent to people on the Family Dog mailing list.
