Phoenix Poster Framing Project - Pink Floyd, 1967, UFO Poster

I just got my Pink Floyd, 1967 - UFO, poster back from being professionally restored and framed. As Archer would say: "IT'S PURE AWESOMENESS MAN!!!!" The piece is triple matted and framed with museum quality glass. The Framer, at Esprit Decor, even embossed the top layer of matting because he knew that I would like it. Esprit Decor is my "go to" place for quality Phoenix poster framing.

Commissioned in 1967 by International Times, design by Hapshash and the Coloured Coat (Michael English and Nigel Waymouth), printed by Osiris Visions for their underground UFO club on London's Tottenham Court Road and starring Pink Floyd. A lovely winged nude female printed in metallic silver ink graces the front, guiding the castle through the gentle yellow skies. The band's performances at the legendary UFO club were documented in the film "Tonight Let's All Make Love In London".  Pink Floyd's UFO performances before a sympathetic audience helped cement an increasing popularity. A week later, their first album 'Piper At The Gates of Dawn' was released.
