“The hardest part for you will be to figure out which ones to hang up first.”—HOW
“…perfect merger of font and graphic design-nerdery and music lust and snobbery. The art is clean and clever and the bands will make you salivate for shows you wish you’d seen.”—Thought Catalog
“This is pretty much the most efficient way to get 200 posters ever.”—Buzzfeed
“Yes, it's bigger than your average book—but for good reason. Swissted measures roughly 11" x 14" because it’s filled with modern recreations of classic rock posters, and it wants you to appreciate them the way you're supposed to: from a nice spot on your wall.”—Uncrate
“What we’re drooling over, visiting and wearing this week: Designer Mike Joyce (not The Smiths guy) dreams up gig posters for Blondie, Black Flag, Pixies, Beastie Boys, and loads more in a Swiss modernist style.”—NME
“What began as a one-off poster, then a triptych, has now become an ongoing project, with some prestigious commissions and a book of the best Swissted designs now on shelves.”—Clash magazine
“(Joyce) takes vintage indie and punk concert posters from shows that actually happened…gives them the Swiss modernist treatment — shape-shifting colors and fonts set in a singular lowercase design — and comes away with a radical, mind-f*cked punk and art juxtaposition of ginormous proportions.”—MTV Hive
“A NYC designer introduces Joe Strummer to Josef Müller-Brockmann.”— Design Bureau
“On the surface, it might not seem like punk rock and Swiss modernism have much in common—but pick up Mike Joyce's book Swissted, and you'll see that the music and art movements blend beautifully.”—MentalFloss.com
“Inspired by the '70s, '80s, and '90s, Swissted's bold and arresting posters mirror the manic energy of the music and the time. Iggy Pop and David Bowie, Minor Threat and Nirvana—Swissted's posters are clashing, complementary, occasionally offensive, and generally delightful.”—InterviewMagazine.com
“..what if there was a way to pay homage to your favorite band and have some super stylish artwork, too? Enter Swissted…”—The Frisky
“Show off your great taste and music cred with posters from this chic art book…”—Cosmopolitan

I had originally bought it because I planned on putting these up in my room since they come with perforated edges but I think I might have to keep this book intact because this book as a whole is too awesome to take apart.
All great, hard to pick which ones I liked the most
