    Description

    FD-19 Big Brother & Holding Co. Limited-Edition Litho Signed by Mouse & Kelley. A very high-quality lithographic reproduction of one of the Family Dog's most popular posters, FD-19 aka "Dollar Bill," signed by the two men who created it, Stanley Mouse and Alton Kelley. It was produced by Rhino Entertainment in 2008, the same year that Mr. Kelley passed away.

    This beauty was printed on very heavy, deluxe parchment paper. It is numbered "AP (Artist's Proof) 26/50," the 26th out of 50 AP's produced.

    The poster advertised Big Brother & Holding Company featuring Janis Joplin along with the Oxford Circle on Friday night, August 5, 1966, and on the following night, Rock and Roll Hall-of-Famer Bo Diddley with the Sons of Adam. The creativity that went into this piece, with all of its design quirks and wordplay on actual U.S. currency, makes it one of the most sought-after of all early Family Dog posters. The striking size of this piece visually blows the original poster out of the water.

    Measures a shade under 37 1/2" x 19" and grades to Near Mint condition, with a very light, slight three-inch diagonal crease in the lower left corner, barely visible and quite harmless. COA from Heritage Auctions.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
