Hapshash & The Coloured Coat – Arthur Brown – Crazy World of Arthur Brown Hapshash Poster
A genuine 1967 first printing poster for The Crazy World of Arthur Brown by Hapshash and the Coloured Coat; #108 in the Osiris series (the highly acclaimed and collectible psychedelic posters made in London in 1967/68, printed and distributed by the Osiris Agency. ) This extremely psychedelic classic is in near mint – condition with a 1 1/4" closed tear at the bottom, which is barely visible. It measures approximately 19 1/2" x 29 1/2", and is printed on thicker paper than some Osiris posters. Some years ago UK dealers began to sell bootleg Hapshash/Osiris posters as originals, claiming them to be from a "newly discovered stash" from the original printer's attic. These were actually recent forgeries, as exposed by collector Brad Rogers. Our blog has an article on this topic and link to Brad's website, which can be found at: (http://recordmecca.blogspot.com/2007/08/counterfeit-uk-osirishapshash-posters.html ).(br)While this particular poster has been heavily bootlegged, this example is absolutely genuine and has been sitting in storage for more than 20 years (the bootlegs date from the last 5-6 years.) Guaranteed authentic with no time limit.
