You may be wondering what the story is on this poster. Back in 2008 Rhino Entertainment part of Warner Music, five of the renowned Family Dog artists, known as the San Francisco Five and Jack Gallery collaborated to print, publish and remaster these iconic posters in limited-edition signed and numbered fine art lithographs. These premiered at Jack Gallery (now gone) and was the first time that this collection of remastered Family Dog images was shown prior to their traveling to galleries worldwide. These oversize remasters were authorized by all party's involved.
Poster is stamped on the back with the date and verification. Using the same image for all the listings, may vary on actual print.
A play on rolling papers, the Zig Zag Man litho was so popular that it quickly became the most highly pirated of all the Family Dog designs. This caused Bill Graham and the Family team to create a "Genuine Counterfeit" stamp which they stamped on as many as of the fakes as they could. The irony behind the piracy - the print contains the phrase "What you don't know about copying and duplicating won't hurt you."
You can see Bindweed Press appears in lower left corner on this one as well.
The poster is Mint Condition and Stored Flat.
