Have you ever been to a real-life discotheque?
-So asks this poster as it invites you to an evening with "a sound of groove rosé". Do not worry, if you have never been to a real discotheque before (which many Danes at the time had not) the invitation kindly explains what it is all about.
On the poster is the set-up for the night which includes the legendary Danish band The Savage Rose (I urge you should check out their music). On the poster is their lead-singer Annisette (with her big hear) who still gives concerts today.
I would go as far and claim that this poster could be unique. If there is anymore of this poster it has to be in a very low number. This poster was made as an invitation to Scandinavian Fashion Week in 1969 and I am quite sure this poster was printed in a quite limited number. The invitation is in both Danish and English.
The poster artist is Ib K. Olsen (1919-2017) who was a Danish artister, cornet player and WWII freedom fighter. I have had few few of Olsen's posters (I also have one in my living room) and I am huge fan of his lines, colors and motifs full of life. Many of his poster where created in 1960s-70s and it is very clear the Olsen understood the psychedelic flower-power universe. However, he was also capable of making stylish and Danish design-a-like posters like this one.
Please note: This poster has not been resized to its original shape (all the white on the poster was not intended to be on the final poster).
Thanks for watching and please let me know if you have any questions.
