    CIA v UFO poster
    OA114

  14. CIA v UFO poster
    Number: OA114
    Poster Artists: Hapshash and the Coloured Coat
    Poster Date (of concert): July 28, 1967
    Poster Size: 29 13/16” x 19 7/8”
    PT: .0054”
    Printing Information: Silkscreen.
    Notes: The poster depicts a naked winged woman pulling an island through space. This represents a type of UFO or Fantasy Island, from which various flying machines are emerging (planes, flying saucers, dirigibles, shooting stars). On the rocky island is a city, with banners above it that say: "Night of the UFOs." The assertion of famous architect and visionary Buckminster Fuller, that we should view our planet Earth as a space craft, influenced the design of the poster. A bi-plane flying below the island is leaving a vapor trail that reads: "July 28 pink floyd."
    The idea of "CIA v. UFO" as the title of the poster came to Michael English and Nigel Waymouth as a representation of the conflict between the repressive forces of the establishment, and the new underground counterculture.
    At the bottom left edge of the poster, it reads:
    "PRINTED IN ENGLAND / OA114 / ©1967 OSIRIS AGENCY LTD. 90 WESTBOURNE TERRACE W2."

    1) A silver star above the "C" in CIA is missing.

    Frank Zappa poster
    OA304

  4. Frank Zappa poster
    Number: OA304
    Poster Artist: LOON (Robert Davidson). Des Dale did the psychedelic border around the photograph.
    Poster Size: 23 9/16" x 17 3/16"
    Printing Information: Offset lithograph. Burnt sienna ink on pale brown paper. Border is a dark brownish-purple color, not black.
    Notes: A poster promoting Frank Zappa. This poster features a photograph of Frank Zappa on the toilet, taken by Robert Davidson in Zappa's suite at the Royal Garden Hotel in Knightsbridge, England during a press reception on August 16, 1967. The photo was taken with Zappa's consent, as it was intended to be used for publicity leading up to the Mothers first U.K. concert at the Royal Albert Hall on September 23, 1967. It was one of twelve pictures taken and shows Zappa on the toilet (there is no phone on his lap). It was not intended to be used for a poster.
    A photograph of Zappa on the toilet from this session (not the same one used for this poster) was used to accompany an article in the August 31, 1967 International Times, issue 18, page 10 and 11, about The Mothers of Invention, titled "The Lyrics are Absolutely Free." This photograph later was used for the poster titled "Phi Zappa Krappa."
    -
    Original Poster
    Not long after the photography session, photographer Davidson decided to make a poster from one of his pictures of Zappa on the toilet. His favorite picture from the dozen photos he shot was the one taken from the side, so that one was chosen. He transferred the picture onto copper printing plates, and printed up a thousand posters from it. In an effort to sell the poster, he left small quantities of these posters at poster shops in Carnaby Street, for sale or return. They turned out to be very popular.
    These original printings did not have an Osiris publisher/credit line on them.
    All it had for a credit was "© LOON-1967" in the top left corner:

    Davidson explained: "I put ‘© Loon’, as Patricia, my girlfriend at the time, thought that I was ‘a bit of a loon.’"
    -
    First Osiris Poster
    As the poster became more popular, Davidson found a distributor for the poster in Osiris Visions.
    Osiris printed their name and credit information on the poster and began selling them through Osiris Visions.
    Along the right edge of the Osiris Visions poster, top to bottom, it reads:
    "OA304 U.K. PRINTED © LOON 1967, DES DALE, FOR OSIRIS VISIONS LTD.
    PHOTOGRAPH: BOBBY DAVIDSON"

    The Osiris publication/credit line was overprinted on Davidson's original printing, so the poster still has the "© LOON-1967" in the top left corner.
    -
    Second Osiris Poster
    The poster was reprinted by Osiris once the initial batch of posters sold out.
    Although this is the second Osiris poster, this is actually the first reprint (and the first Osiris printing of the poster).
    For the reprint, the "© LOON-1967" credit was erased, and the "PHOTOGRAPH: BOBBY DAVIDSON" part of the publication/credit line was also removed.
    Along the right edge of the Osiris Visions poster, top to bottom, it reads:
    "OA304 U.K. PRINTED © LOON 1967, DES DALE, FOR OSIRIS VISIONS LTD."

    -
    It should be noted that this Osiris poster was not authorized by Frank Zappa and he apparently made no royalties from it. He did authorize a version of this poster with a different toilet photograph (the one used in the IT article), and it had the words "Phi Zappa Krappa" at the top. It was published in 1969 by THE VISUAL THING, Inc.
    Frank Zappa had this to say about the poster: "It was supposed to be used as publicity for our first concert in 1967. And the photographer who took it made a poster and sold it for his own profit. And then that poster was bootlegged all over Europe and eventually went into the United States. And millions of them were sold. But I couldn't stop them from doing that. No! Because in London, the photographic copyright laws are different from the United States. Somebody takes a picture in the U.S., they can't make commercial use out of it without your permission. But in England, if somebody takes your picture, the photographer owns it and can do whatever he wants with it."

    Note: Robert Davidson is currently selling authorized reprints of this poster made directly from his negative.

    In the bottom left corner of the poster, it reads:
    "PRINTED BY TSR ENGLAND,
    PHOTO SIDA OA 501 © OSIRIS VISIONS
    LTD. 83 CHARLOTTE ST. W.1."

    Since the Osiris publication/credit line is on the promo poster, it appears that the Osiris poster came first and the promo stamp was added to the Osiris poster later.
    This promo poster was not sold as a part of the Osiris series.

    Jimi Hendrix Track records promo poster

    Notes: This poster was also used as a Track Records promo poster for Jimi Hendrix, with a white Track Records logo in the lower right corner.
    In the bottom left of the poster, it reads:
    "PRINTED BY TSR ENGLAND. PHOTO
    DONALD SILVERSTEIN OA 502

    The Osiris copyright/address portion of the publication/credit line is not on the promo poster.
    However, the OA 502 designation is still listed.
    So it appears that the Osiris poster came first, and the last two lines of the publication/credit line were removed when the Track Records logo was added to the poster.
    This promo poster was not sold as a part of the Osiris series.
