Curio: Elaine Hanelock's Psychedelia

Alexa here. I've been on a bit of a redecorating jag lately, most likely because I'm pregnant and somehow that comes with the territory. In my searches for some upgraded artwork I came upon these vintage posters from 1968 designed by Elaine Hanelock.  I've had trouble finding any information on the artist, but her work looks to be a part of, or at the very least influenced by, the San Francisco poster art scene of the time (exemplified by artists like Bonnie Maclean). While this type of style is usually in the service of a gig poster, I love that these instead celebrate Golden Age film stars.  If mod is your thing you can find some of Elaine's original prints for sale on ebay and etsy at a reasonable price.  Here's a sampling.

Alex, I was thinking about the Chaplin and the Clark Gable as a duo. Or the Marx Brothers and Laurel and Hardy. Oh, if only I had more wall space!
