Editorial Reviews

Review

“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 opted to tear out the perforated posters and decorate my work office. It's nice to have all these posters in a book, but why not actually use them!? The design is top notch and it's a good blend of old shows and some newer stuff. Get nothing but compliments about the design. It's awesome.

Into punk rock? Alternative? Or, into capital-M Modernism? How about poster design, or just design in general? If so, Swissted is your poster book, especially if you’re into several of the above, or just have an on-going inner dialogue over anarchy vs. order. As a sort of exercise in advanced design exploration, Mike Joyce takes the text from classic punk, grunge, and alternative show flyers and redesigns them, creating a veritable catalog of Swiss/modern designs and typography. (Old-school punks: Forget the Pettibone-style Black Flag flyer scrawls, and think more like the record covers for The Germs, OMD, or any mod band’s logo.) Clean, controlled, and very aesthetically pleasing. The clashing contrast between the two aesthetics is both surprising and welcome. My friends and I attended a fair number of the shows included within, and I designed more than a few punk-era flyers in my time — but none of them looked like those in Swissted. I wish they had. This is a great gift for the cool designers in your life, and an absolute must-have purchase for anyone in the business of poster design. And, since the pages can be removed for framing, Swissted is perfect for display in Modern homes or offices, or anyone looking for bold, visually dynamic, and professional — yet unpretentious — design accents.

What great memories this book has brought me of so many concerts I attended! The graphics are amazing. I am so tempted to tear out and frame some but I hate to ruin the integrity of the book. I might have to order another so that I can do both.

This is a really cool book! I bought it for my boyfriend who is a graphic designer. We have been wanting to find new art for our walls and this definitely gives us plenty to choose from. If you love design, music, or both you'll love this book.

This book pays homage to the flyers I wish I still had, the shows I did see, and the shows I wish I had the opportunity to see. Thank you Mike for putting together a fantastic compendium of music and design.

These posters are brilliant and this is a great piece to talk about and show friends.

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.

This is a simply gorgeous book. I bought it as a gift for my husband who loves album cover art and he regularly picks it up just to leaf through the pages.
