Classic Rock Posters charts the history of the music poster from the 1950s to the present day. With more than 500 posters and images originating in the US, UK, and beyond—some unseen for many years—and featuring the work of earlier unknown artists together with the most influential designers working in the industry to date, the book explores the interplay between music and art, and musicians and designers, in a remarkable visual journey.

Chronological organization shows how poster art developed over sixty years, alongside the evolving music scene—from early rock ’n’ roll to beat, blues and folk, and from the hip-hop and dance explosion of the 1980s, right up to the present day.

  • Compiled by infl uential, Oakland, CA-based poster historian and artist Dennis Loren, with music journalist Mick Farren.
  • Interviews with, and features on, key artists such as Stanley Mouse and Alton Kelley of Family Dog; Michael English and Nigel Waymouth of Hapshash and the Coloured Coat; Roger Dean; Jamie Reid and Raymond Pettibon; Dave Little; and Emek.
  • Features on significant music promoters and music venues, including Chet Helms, Bill Graham, and punk’s CBGB’s.
  • Includes a diverse range of design styles from letterpress and “do-it-yourself” punk to the rise of computer graphics, and the retro illustrations of the modern era.
  • 305x320mm size

Customer Rating Beautiful coffee table book containing all those classic posters and more. I found the font size a bit small, but I probably need glasses!
