About the Author

Stanley "Mouse" Miller was the son of a Disney animator and grew up doing hot-rod art in Detroit. Mouse had a natural feel for the organic lines of Art Nouveau as well as a hand that drew the art seemingly of its own volition. Upon moving to San Francisco, he teamed up with Alton Kelley to form the renowned "Mouse and Kelley." Many of their posters remain enduring symbols of the sixties counterculture. His art is displayed in numerous museums around the world including The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, The Tokyo Museum Of Modern Art, The Louvre in Paris as well as the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. Mouse is still actively painting and he lives in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Reviews

"Stanley Mouse was one of the most important and beloved [among the poster artists of the 60s]; his work today is considered seminal. This 224-page hardcover collection reproduces all of Mouse's most famous works of the era...But the book, with text by Blair Jackson, goes beyond that era, charting Mouse's growth from the pre-ballroom days into the '70s, '80s and the present, his talent now often funneled into more traditional but no less striking and intriguing oil paintings."--Relix
