Regular price $99.99 $99.99 Sale

ART OF MODERN ROCK showcases the work of scores of modern pop-art masters, including Frank Kozik, Derek Hess, Lindsey Kuhn, Mark Arminski, Firehouse, Emek, Jermaine Rogers, Justin Hampton, Jeff Kleinsmith, Drowning Creek, Hatch Show Print, The Ames Brothers, Scrojo, and over 300 others from all over the world.

This spectacular work includes eye-opening posters for rock's greatest bands (Rolling Stones, Phish, Metallica) and the most exciting new bands (Queens of the Stone Age, White Stripes, The Strokes) on tour and at key gigs.

Modern rock posters, while wildly individual, encompass cutting-edge stylistic approaches and a daring, often controversial use of imagery. Authors Paul Grushkin and Dennis King, two of rock's premier historians and experts on rock & roll art, gathered the posters from over 8,000 submissions worldwide, and provide critical overview and augmented, detailed profiles of the artists as well as commentary on key works. They have dug up spectacular treasures, and persuaded prominent artists to allow their best and most sought-after works-including the great limited-run screenprints-to be included. ART OF MODERN ROCK is a bona fide publishing event.
