A collection of never-before-seen Libertines posters - handmade by Pete Doherty and the band's first drummer Paul 'Mr Razzcocks' Dufour - have gone on sale online.

The six posters, which date from 2000 (nearly two years before The Libertines signed a record deal) advertise the band's early gigs at tiny London venues including 333 and The Dublin Castle.

All of the posters (one of which you can see to the right of the page) are signed by Dufour, and come with a certificate of authenticity. 50 copies of each design are on sale.

Several of the posters, including the one to the right of the page, feature collages similar in style to the design of The Libertines early artwork, while one - dated November 2, 2000 - also names Razorlight's Johnny Borrell as the band's support act.

Others include a quote from the band's first NME review - written in 1999, when they were still a skiffle outfit. The quote calls The Libertines "the most alluring thing since opium lollipops".

To view and buy the posters, see Libertinesposterart.com.

Dufour recorded a number of songs with The Libertines' before the band signed to Rough Trade in 2002.

Tracks he recorded with the band include the original versions of 'Music When The Lights Go Out' and 'France', along with a host of unreleased songs including 'Lean As A Runner Bean', 'The Domestic' and 'Glee Maloya'.

There are rumours of a posthumous release for the material.
