As one of my earliest Amazon purchases, (2004) I am still impressed no matter how many times I opens this book. The incredible art that embodies the concert or poster they made for so many amazing bands, truly puts a smile on any guests' face. This is the first book picked up on my coffee table. Every. Single. Time. Wether you have seen the poster before, were at the actual concert or show, or it's your first time picking it up, you are sure to be impressed.

In a word, Outstanding!! First of all don't let the sheer size and weight of this beast of a book fool you. It cradels itself into your arms like it should be attached through a usb cord directly to your frontal lobe. It is all here, from the artist you want to see and read about to the stunning recreations of the posters themselves. This book will not dissapoint, in any way. If you have a problem with this book then you probably have a problem watching a beautiful sunset or a stunning rainbow after a rain shower, in other words you can't be helped. Focusing the majority of it's time on the explosion in the silkscreen movement of poster art, it holds nothing back. Kozik, Coop, Kuhn, Uncle Charlie, Houston, Jermaine, Emek, Mcpherson, Bell, and many many others. This is not a sit down and read kind of book, this is a true coffee table book, one could spend countless hours shuffling through the pages and find something new everytime. If you are a die hard collector or if you have a curious streak about what all the fuss is, do yourself a favor, buy this book. It is one purchase you will never regret!!!!!!

Excellent selection of rock posters. The book is a big format so it makes the art that much more fun to look at (not all posters get a full page, obviously, but still). For those of you who can't get to that store in Berkeley (or who don't feel like putting up with the curmudgeonly proprietor), this book is a decent substitute.

I bought this book for my nephew who makes his living as a graphic artist. He was wowed big time. There isn't much editorial content or philosophy here. What you get is a look at some exciting work up close. I don't know of any other way to view this many poster and fine art pieces about the ephemeral world of Rock Music. These posters go up before the show and then are usually gone when the show is over. A great collection.

Thanks for the fast delivery! This is a book I've wanted for some time now. I's got tons of great gig poster and screen printed poster art from many of the leaders in rock-n-roll poster art. It' serves as a great insight into many of modern art and pop art masters!!!

First off, the book is huge! It is well laid out and documents the poster periods and movements well. It is a great inspiration for art styles and concepts as well as informative. My only small criticism is with the poster identifiers at the bottom of each page. The credits are numbered, but there are no corresponding numbers by each poster. So it just takes a little longer to identify them visually. A minor issue. But the quantiy and quality outshine any lay out issues the book may have.

Unbelievable! This book has managed to capture the burdgeoning poster movement and the many approaches from the wide variety of artists who wrangle this renegade artform in an extraodinary collection of diversity. From metal to rap, emo to noise, every genre of music and art is represented in this beautiful tome. The first book, Art of Rock, is phenomenal, but this one runs the extra distance and is spectacularly divine. Guaranteed hours upon hours of viewing pleasure!!
