“Blotter art is an exceptional form of American folk art. It started around 1970 when drug dealers used sheets of perforated blotter paper, printed secretively, to drop liquid of LSD onto. It was easier to sell the drug this way as paper was significantly lighter than other mediums and could meet the mandatory minimum sentences set after LSD became illegal.

Dealers often put their brand names or logos on the product which served to identify a type of acid. These later became decorative iconic images which eventually transformed into a proper form of art. The only difference is that the contemporary perforated paper art is undipped, free of acid.

Nowadays it is a highly appreciated art form.”

“Albert Hofmann (January 11, 1906 – April 29, 2008[1][2]) was a Swiss scientist best known for having been the first to synthesize, ingest and learn of the psychedelic effects of lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD)”.

THE BEAUTIFUL IMAGE SHOWN ABOVE was created by artist Stevee Postman to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the discovery of the psychoactive effects of LSD by its inventor, Dr. Albert Hofmann.

Dr. Albert Hofmann kindly agreed to add his autograph to a limited number of 60 of these pieces of art.

Blotter art is a unique form of contemporary folk art–the “baseball card” for the drug enthusiast.


This is the world famous Alice Through the Looking Glass blotter. This double sided design, by Mark McCloud is regarded as one of the most beautiful blotters ever produced. This is a “must-have” for any serious blotter collector.
