San Francisco: Mouse! Studios, 1966. Offset. 6 ¼ x 9 ½ in. Light toning to top of front wrapper; else near fine. Item #6720
Rare issue of Stanley Mouse’s comic book and catalog Mouse!. Stanley Mouse is best known for his work designing posters for The Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, and Eric Clapton, along with famed venues like The Fillmore Auditorium and Avalon Ballroom. His work for these bands and venues was crucial in defining the visual language of the 60s counterculture.
Mouse first found work while in art school in Detroit doing custom paint jobs for hot rods and began airbrushing his designs on shirts. The book is a catalog of airbrushed garments available for purchase from Mouse!–mostly monsters driving muscle cars–with comics interspersed.
A scarce example of the early work of an artist who would soon be extremely influential in the development of the 60s counterculture aesthetic.
