Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Readers gave the first Gig Posters anthology a standing ovation—so for your viewing pleasure, here’s one heck of an encore: 700 more incredible posters from the archives of GigPosters.com, the Internet’s premier destination for concert poster art. It’s a mad jam of illustration and photography, collage and typography, bringing the contemporary music scene to exciting visual life for a generation of fans who’ve grown up in the post-album-art era.

Gig Posters Volume 2 showcases bold artistic riffing by a hundred of today’s most talented designers, including David V. D’Andrea, Peter Cardoso, Graham Pilling, Tyler Stout, Marq Spusta, and Nashville’s legendary Hatch Show Print. You’ll peek inside their portfolios and hear the backstage stories of how these incredible art-and-music creations came to be.

You’ll also find 101 perforated and ready-to-frame posters promoting the most dynamic musical acts of the twenty-first century, from the Black Keys, Flight of the Conchords, Ice-T, and My Morning Jacket to Norah Jones, the Avett Brothers, Coheed & Cambria, and many, many more.

It’s an awesome compendium of pop-art-history in the making—and it’s also just what the walls of your apartment or office have been waiting for.
