EDITED TO ADD: Ok, the biggest problem with this is that finding frames for the cool posters is total CRAP. There are no premade frames that fit. The posters are a weird size and yes, I looked everywhere and no, I will not put such sweet prints on my wall in frames that come from Dollar Tree or Dollar General. That's like framing a Da Vinci with popsicle sticks, except popsicles sticks are better built than a Dollar Tree frame. So be careful. If you're like, "I'll put 6-8 up at a time," think again. Unless your plan is to spend like $300 on frames....well, that would be nice. But then we wouldn't be buying Gig Posters to accentuate our record collections and turntables.
I really like the way it is printed on nice, heavier stock and each page comes with perforations so you can tear out and display selected pieces as posters. It is a larger book (dimension-wise) and this lends itself well to the fact that it IS a poster book. Nothing worse than getting a new book on art posters or design and the like, only to find that the images are smaller than you'd like them to be and you miss out on great detail.
I'm often doing music and gig posters, so for me this is a great little asset for inspiration. It has a little write-up on each of the artists/creative studios with a website for each which is handy and personally always appreciated. I highly recommend this book. There is a wide range of artists and tons of stuff I haven't seen before.
There are something like 700 images and 100 rip out posters. I will now have to get a second copy so I can stick a few around the office and keep one for reference :)
Of course I took a quick peek through it before I wrapped. I have to say I will be buying a copy for myself! There are some posters that are removable for framing and display but I think I will leave my book whole.
It's great to see posters from small to large venue shows.
Don't know what else to say, if you are a music fan of any genre this book is definitely for you!
