3a2) Original artwork:

Artwork size: 29 1/4" x 20 1/2"
Note: This is the original concert poster artwork master drawing in pencil by Michael English.
Michael English wrote about this art work: "'Normally, the structural design of our work was created on layout paper and then traced out onto the final artwork card. That layout was then invariably discarded as waste. However the 5th Dimension poster was so complex that it required a great deal more preparatory work. This meant the creation of a master drawing on cartridge paper whose more robust nature allowed us the freedom to erase and re-draw the various parts of the design until we were satisfied with it. That done, a final tracing was then made from it on layout paper which was then transferred to the card. The complex maze like pattern that comprises the central theme of this poster was intended to give the impression of a window or doorway into a fifth dimension. The flickering effect of the colours together with the pattern creates a mesmerising experience that was supposed to draw the observer into another space. Under the influence of LSD, of course, the effect would have been much more dramatic."

3a3) Poster - suspected reprint:

Poster Size: 30 ¾” x 20 15/16”
PT: .006”
Note: A number of these posters have turned up on paper that appears new (white) with vivid colors, causing much specualtion about authenticity. The source claimed that the printer stored them for years out of the light, and that they are authentic. However, many people believe that these are more recent printings and not originals.

PT: .0057”

Notes: A silkscreen poster for the Saville Theater in London, England, with listings for October 1 & 8, 1967.
This was the third of three Saville Theater posters by Hapshash and the Coloured Coat. Hapshash was commissioned by Brian Epstein’s NEMS Enterprises to do posters for a series of Sunday Night concerts at his newly acquired venue, the Saville Theater in London. A favorite record which English and Waymouth liked to play while working, the Velvet Underground’s "Venus In Furs," inspired the image of the girl with the whip on the poster.
