Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Renowned graphic artist Jason Munnthe one-man operation behind the studio The Small Stakesis a leader in modern-day music poster design. Collected here for the first time are over 150 of his iconic posters for various bands, including Beck, Wilco, Built to Spill, the Flaming Lips, the Pixies, and many more. Unique in their conceptual elegance, Munn's silk-screened posters are widely appreciated for perfectly evoking each artist or band's character and distinctive sound. With a foreword by Death Cab for Cutie's bassist Nicolas Harmer, an interview conducted by prolific poster artist Jay Ryan, and 6-color printing that showcases metallic silver and gold, this book is a beautiful celebration of art and music.
