This lim­ited edi­tion book fea­tures the psy­che­delic con­cert posters from the Seat­tle area that were pro­duced in the 1960’s.

Split Foun­tain Hiero­glyph­ics will be a hard­bound book, signed and num­bered with a lim­ited edi­tion of 1,000 to 2,000. This vol­ume will be (approx­i­mately) 9”x12” and at least 150 pages. Illus­trated in full color, this vol­ume will fol­low the rise and demise of the psy­che­delic con­cert poster in the Seat­tle area from 1966–1969.

Since these posters were made as dis­pos­able adver­tis­ing, very few have sur­vived. Scott McDougall has been pho­tograph­ing these pieces in var­i­ous pri­vate and museum col­lec­tions for over 20 years with an even­tual book in mind. The major­ity of this body of work has not been doc­u­mented until now. In addi­tion to the indi­vid­ual poster artists, approx­i­mately 200 dif­fer­ent per­form­ers and groups as well as the local venues and light shows will be indexed to the illustrations.

Part of the project appeal for Scott is to have the book pro­duced in Seat­tle with the printer he has done numer­ous projects together with over the past 15 years or so that have included many posters along with cat­a­logues and CD cov­ers. The fund­ing goal is entirely based on print­ing of the book and rewards, bindery, ship­ping and related expenses. Addi­tional reward items are from Scott’s per­sonal col­lec­tion. At this time, all of the design work, pho­tog­ra­phy, writ­ing and research have been a labor of his love.

Blue Rose Ball 2014 benefit rock poster by Stanley Mouse

Blue Rose Ball Ben­e­fit 2014 rock poster by Stan­ley Mouse
In Mem­ory of Joe Capone & Sup­port­ing the Old Adobe School
Sat­ur­day, June 14, 2014 at Sebas­tiani The­atre, Sonoma, CA

Sched­uled to Appear:

Steve For­bert, Mark Karan, Josh Joplin, Jason Crosby, Kelly Fitzger­ald, Drew Har­ri­son, Tim Gor­manMarc Muller, Dead On Live


Blue Roses appear through­out his­tory in art, lit­er­a­ture and in one iconic 1978 con­cert poster, as a sym­bol of love, hope and faith. But, in real life blue roses don’t actu­ally exist. Genet­i­cally no one has man­aged to crack the code and pro­duce a true blue rose, or have they?

On Febuary 8, 2014, our com­mu­nity lost a great friend in Joe Capone. For those of us lucky enough to have known Joe, we had an authen­tic blue rose in our midst. Joe was that guy that knew how good life was and reminded you often. Any­time you asked Joe how he was doing his answer was always, sim­ply “liv­ing the dream…”. He knew how pre­cious life was and he embraced it.

To honor Joe’s life, incred­i­bly well-lived and chock full of love and giv­ing back, we’re assem­bling some amaz­ing musi­cal tal­ent for the inau­gural Blue Rose Ball where we’ll rock and roll and cel­e­brate Joe’s pas­sion for life and music. We’ll also do some real good for the com­mu­nity and raise money to help give more chil­dren a chance to get a jump-start on a great edu­ca­tion by intro­duc­ing the Joseph Capone Schol­ar­ship Fund at the Old Adobe School in Sonoma, California.

We have gath­ered together an incred­i­ble line-up of world-class musi­cians who have embraced the mes­sage of the evening and the leg­endary artist Stan­ley Mouse, has gra­ciously agreed to pro­duce one more blue rose con­cert poster in honor of the evening. Stan­ley pro­duced many of the iconic images that sym­bol­ized an era and he has lent us his clas­sic blue rose image that once graced the poster for the last show at Win­ter­land on Decem­ber 31, 1978. The fea­tured acts that night were the Grate­ful Dead, the Blues Broth­ers and the New Rid­ers of the Pur­ple Sage. (pic­tured below)
