Ultraviolet: 69 Classic Blacklight Posters from the Aquarian Age and Beyond is a 2009 book about blacklight posters by Daniel Donahue, with an introduction by Andrew VanWyngarden and Ben Goldwasser of the band MGMT.
The official item description : "One of the most ubiquitous items of the 1960s and 1970s, the black light poster represented some of the most imaginative, colorful, and "out there" creativity of the period; Ultraviolet is the first book to ever celebrate this alternative art form. Daniel Donahue, an amateur historian of counterculture, has collected hundreds of vintage blacklight posters and chosen 69 of the best for this volume. Covering some of the more relevant subjects of the period, including Sex, Drugs, Rock ’N’ Roll, Earth Awareness, Black Power, and Astrology, Ultraviolet has been printed with fluorescent inks so that the pages will actually glow under black light. This hip volume is a gift from the fifth dimension for anyone interested in alternative culture or graphic design."
A wall calendar called Ultraviolet 2011 Wall Calendar: 13 Posters That Glow in Blacklight by the same author also exists.
