14-HOUR TECHNICOLOR DREAM.

Original poster designed by Mike McInnerney announcing the '14-Hour Technicolor Dream Free Speech Benefit' for International Times at Alexandra Palace, north London, on April 29, 1967. Colour silkscreen print. 75.4x50.8cm.

Lists all the main participants for this landmark event (a British equivalent to the West Coast multi-media Acid Tests and Human Be-In gatherings), including Soft Machine, Pink Floyd, Arthur Brown, The Move, and many others.

McInnerney has described how the rainbow ink effect was "produced by laying out two separate inks which were blended by a single pull of the squeegee. As the printing progressed the inks were changed so that no two posters were the same."

This copy, predominantly deep reddish brown, lacks the vibrancy of some examples seen by this cataloguer, and the upper edge has been affected by damp, but the front is otherwise clean and bright, with only light handling wear and minor edge-creasing.
