Contents : Mouse and Kelley - Biographies - Olds Lamps for New (Posters) - Going for a Song ( Publications) - Interiors ( collages) Rock Icons ( album Covers) - All tat Glitters (posters) - Street Heraldry ( t-Shirts)

original edition, high quality paper that sheds some insight on Frisco's finest poster and album jackets artists Mouse and Kelly.

This book details their late sixties and early seventies creations with poster reproductions of all the great SF concerts, Human Beins, etc.

I guess their art needs little to no introduction.

This is a rare first edition book on their art and getting a tough one to dig up. Just beautiful. Totally recommended.


Stanley Mouse (b. Stanley George Miller, October 10, 1940) is an American artist, best known for his 1960s psychedelic rock concert poster designs and Grateful Dead album cover art.

Alton Kelley (June 17, 1940 in Houlton, Maine — June 1, 2008 in Petaluma, California) was an American artist best known for his psychedelic art, in particular his designs for 1960s rock concerts and albums. Along with artists Rick Griffin, Stanley Mouse, Victor Moscoso and Wes Wilson, Kelley founded the Berkeley Bonaparte distribution agency in order to produce and sell psychedelic poster art.

Along with fellow artist Stanley Mouse, Kelley is credited with creating the wings and beetles on all Journey album covers as well as the skull and roses image for the Grateful Dead. Kelley's artwork on the 1971 self-titled live album, Grateful Dead, incorporated a black and white illustration of a skeleton by Edmund Sullivan, which originally appeared in a 19th century edition of the Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám.

In 1995, Kelley designed and printed a limited edition poster of Jack Kerouac to raise money for the Jan Kerouac Benefit Fund. Kelley is also credited for the cover art from the 1996, King's X album Ear Candy.
