Synopses & Reviews
Rick Griffin was one of the most influential artists to emerge from the late 60s San Francisco art scene, second only perhaps to R. Crumb. His poster art and comix are descended from dada and surrealism, but take unique life in their representation of surf culture, psychedelic realities and religious experience. This book covers the span of Griffin's career and is an excellent retrospective of the work of this magnificent artist. Griffin illustrated top flight album covers for classic rock acts including the Grateful Dead.
