Format: Hardcover
Now you can see just how beautiful these rock posters are. Each poster in the Fillmore series is presented in full color. An excellent tool to guide you in your purchases, or just help you to enjoy these works of art. Excellent information on the artists and some cool insights into the people and the place that was the Fillmore west.

The service and delivery was excellent , no complaints, but, although the book was in the condition stated, it was not as I expected. The cover of the book was yellow and not the colour printed book shown, and it has a personal message inside the cover. Something I am not too keen on. I bought the book for its content, and for that, it is what I expected. Great book. Its amazing the artistry of those who produced the posters, etc. Anyone who enjoys Art, in any form, should like this book. Well worth the money. I just wish it was the cover I expected, and informed that it has hand writing inside the cover.

Superb 8 Oct. 2006
By psychsound - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The psychedelic posters from the late 1960's are classic and very much a part of rock history. These posters were commissioned by Bill Graham, who ran the Fillmore East and West, and other venues. The posters were beautiful and colorful and psychedelic. They were carefully created and used to promote the concerts, but what makes them so amazing is that all this work to promote only a few weekend concerts, which typically featured three or four bands playing on Friday and Saturdays. Never again would such works of art capture the moment. This book tells you about the artists and how they came to become Fillmore artists, and of course full color reproductions of the Fillmore posters are prominently featured through the book. If you love the posters, you'll love the book.

Art of the FIllmore - Posters 1966-1971 26 Oct. 2005
By Dick B. Cooper - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a person who attended some of the shows represented by the posters, I loved the book. It brought back many, many memories and inspirations. The book captured the essence of Bill Graham as an entrepreneur and, as it turned out, supporter of the arts.

Not a book for everyone, but if you were there, or you think you wanted to be there, this is a great value.

Ebook version in black and white 18 Jan. 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The rating is for the ebook version. I would give the paper version 5 stars. I own the paper version and wanted the electronic version to study on the go. Imagine my surprise at finding the book was not in the glorious psychedelic colors of the original but in bad black and white. There is no mention of this in the description and I feel ripped off. So buyer beware

High on the colors 10 Oct. 2007
By S. Smyth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is the most comprehensive collection of psychedelic art I could find. Remember a time when commercial design came from the heart to the pen. No computer enhanced 3-D images. Just wavy brush strokes and colors bold enough to get you high. Pick it up, and trip out.
