I bought this book sight unseen off Amazon and was immediately disappointed as soon as I opened the cover. I was hoping for a collection of cool designs that would inspire me for my graphic design work. Maybe one third of the designs are quality (at best) the rest are very mediocre. One page has six variations of the same Mickey Mouse T-shirt with different text. WTF! There is a T-shirt with the original M TV logo, one with a Pepsi logo, you get the idea. The book is more of a historical catalog than anything else.

The book also has several interviews with losers who collect T's and have hundreds of them and who provided the shirts featured in the book. Who cares, not me!

These authors pulled a good one over their two publishers because this book is just an expanded upon version of Classic Rock T-Shirts. If you're looking for a good reference book about this style of shirts, buy this one. The only disadvantage is that this is a soft-cover book. Classic Rock T-Shirts by the same authors is the exact same book, just with less content.

I bought this book as a form of research since I currently work at a screen printing shop in town and it did not disappoint. Getting to see these old shirts separated by genre was a great way to get some new ideas for designs.

book was useless. the selection of the t-shirts in the book is poor, and the images are too small and of poor quality to really be appreciated.
bought the book used to save money, and the return of the book was almost $20, not worth it, but probably due to my inexperience.
