10 october 2008 – 25 january 2009  design museum – london

alan aldridge created some of the most iconic images from the psychedelic era. his posters and album designs helped defined the visual for bands such as the beatles, the who and many more. despite wearing many hats, aldridge dubbed himself a ‘graphic entertainer’ a fitting title for his pioneering approach to design. still active today, aldridge has also created the imagery for the house of blues, he designed the beatles’ illustrated lyrics book, the poster for andy warhol’s film ‘chelsea girls’ and served as art director at penguin. this exhibit is the first complete retrospective of aldridge’s work in his native uk. he dubbed himself a ‘graphic entertainer’.
