A Celebration of the Artists Behind the American Rock Poster Movement

Art of the Dead Limited Edition Box Print Box Sets by Stanley Mouse

The Art of the Dead by Phil Cushway showcases the vibrant, charismatic poster art that emerged from the streets of San Francisco in 1964 and 1966. It traces the cultural, political, and historical influences of posters as art back to Japanese wood blocks through Bell Époque, on to the Beatniks, the Free Speech Movement, and the Acid Tests. Featuring interviews and profiles of the key artists, including Rick Griffin, Stanley “Mouse” Miller, Alton Kelley, Wes Wilson, and Victor Moscoso.

The book includes over 200 large and small reproductions of pieces relating to the Grateful Dead and offers a trip through time with a focus on the artists and the development of the rock poster as a modern art form.

The cover of the book was adapted from a 1995 Grateful Dead Mardi Gras poster by Troy Alders.

It was just announced that there is a special Art of the Dead limited edition art print box set by Stanley Mouse, a key architect of this legacy. Five 11″ x 17″ previously unpublished archival giclee prints were produced in San Francisco under Stanley’s supervision directly from his original oil paintings and incorporated into an edition of 225.
