About
This poster is absolutely the most famous in the Family Dog series, and one of the most famous posters of all time. The skeleton and roses image was taken from a piece done by a 19th century artist named Edward Joseph Sullivan. Mouse and Kelley colored the image, which was associated with the Grateful Dead as one of their logos for the rest of the band's career. This is one of the rarest and most expensive posters to obtain in good condition today.
