    1 thought on “Art of Modern Rock: The Poster Explosion”

    1. Biased review, as I'm one of the artists in this book. The first book, The Art of Rock, was my Bible when I was a kid, & introduced me to artists who'd become personal heroes of my career; Stanley Mouse, Shawn Kerri, & Rick Griffin. I'd stay up all night getting baked & stealing all I could from that book. A group of poster artists came together in Philly for a monster poster show called Artifacts of the Improbable, including live music at the Trocadero. I heard that author Grushkin [...]

    2. I absolutely love this book! Yeah, there's technically not much to "read," but who cares? It's packed with some of the most eye-catching imagery you'll ever see, and that's exactly the point. It's probably the most worn coffee table book I own. The dust cover on it was already torn and tattered when I found the book in the store from all the previous customers who obviously couldn't resist it either. I didn't even care, because the book was still in good shape, and I had to have it all to myself [...]

    3. I borrowed this book to use in my uni work, and I loved it. Not a book full of textual reading as the majority was imagery, but the text parts provided some lovely insights into the designers works and the techniques/genres on show. The images are stunning and I was spoilt for choice for material to use. I couldn't put the book down once I'd started reading as I was constantly scanning the pages in appreciation of the poster designs. Brilliant collection.

    4. If you're a fan of poster art, this is the book for you! Nearly 500 pages of nearly every band you can think of, from Green Day to Electric Frankenstein. Beautiful large coffee-table book, with big, beautiful, color graphics. If you're a fan of this form or art, you'll find more than one page you'll consider framing.

    5. Huge coffeetable book. Wasn't as balanced as I thought I'd be. Think it focuses on posters created in the late 90's early 00's; much more recent poster art is vastly diverse. Nice glossy reprints, though.

    6. I love this book! Some of my friends were in this book. This was really the first book that melded together the second wave of screenprinting and gigposters.

    7. Biased as I'm one of the artists in the book, but it's comprehensive and full of gigposter goodness.
