Small, compact format but it gets the job done. It depicts the evolution of rock n' roll posters from the 50's to the the 80's. As much about the artists and agencies as it is about the art.
Not only for the brilliant cataloging of the posters themselves but also for the otherwise-would-be-forgotten tales of the people who made and supported these artworks in their formative days
This book goes through the beginning of poster art up until early screenprinted. The old school Hatch posters and then the xerox copied fliers are cool to look at. The later book- Art of Modern Rock is awesome too!
The Art of Rock Posters is one of my favourite go-to books for artistic inspiration. Bounded inside this volume is the evolution of artwork that was designed not only to inform but to also interpret the essence of the music and it's performers...with most vivid results.
Great Art book.
