Some people can't surf : the graphic design of Art Chantry by Julie Lasky( Book )

7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Art Chantry's contrarian ways have placed him in the pantheon of great modern designers. Some People Can't Surf: The Graphic Design of Art Chantry is the first survey of this visual iconoclast, who also designed the book and packed it with hundreds of his vibrant images. Gritty, funny, and refreshingly low-tech, his award-winning work has promoted countless bands, social causes, and non-profits. Tracing Chantry's career from his covers and layouts for the seminal music magazine The Rocket, to album covers for such cult bands as Mudhoney, the Reverend Horton Heat, and the Fastbacks, Some People Can't Surf is a comprehensive look at his creative evolution. Complete with commentary on the unusual origins and unorthodox processes behind his work, as well as providing context for his oft-copied look, Some People Can't Surf is a much-anticipated exploration of this idiosyncratic design master."--Jacket
100 posters, 134 squirrels : a decade of hot dogs, large mammals, and independent rock : the handcrafted art of Jay Ryan by Jay Ryan( Book )

6 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Not only a gorgeous catalog of the artist's many memorable posters, but a history of sorts of the Chicago underground rock scene in the last 15 years."--Chicago Sun-Times "Ryan takes a distinctly rootsy, charmingly old-school approach to design at his Bird Machine print shop ... Homespun never looked better."--ReadyMade "Whimsically breathing a refreshing innocence against the 'grab you by the eyeballs and squeeze' icon exploitation of Coop, Frank Kozik and The Pizz, Ryan's quiet sketch style and his hand-pulled Easter egg blues and canary yellows make for a softer, more subconscious concert poster experience." -The Pulse "Jay Ryan's decade of rock-postering has produced some superb and arresting work ... I cannot think of a better visual advertisement for underground rock: posters that are wild, articulate, and well made; posters with both a heart and a brain." -PopMatters "Jay Ryan has been churning out some of the most consistent and engaging poster art anywhere for years ... This is a well-put together, coffee table-style book that looks great in every respect but without the usual coffee table art book price tag." -The New Scheme An updated greatest hits collection of Jay Ryan's first decade of compelling posters, framed by essays from luminaries in the music and design worlds. Jay Ryan has been making screen-printed concert posters in Chicago since 1995. Known for his hand-drawn type, humorous animal subjects, and muted color selections, he has worked for thousands of rock bands, as well as clients like Patagonia clothing, Converse shoes, Burton Snowboards, and the BBC. His second book, Animals and Objects In and Out of Water, was published in 2009 by Akashic Books. He lives in Chicago

"Up until the mid-1980s, when the desktop computer debuted, the whole design production process had been done primarily by hand, and with the aide of analog machines.

Swag : rock posters of the '90s by Spencer Drate( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and Spanish and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Exploding with color, Swag is an introduction into the world of concert poster art from the past decade, and a look at the cutting-edge music for which it was created. Sandwiched between the glitz of glam rock and the bombast of bling-bling, rock music in the 1990s sounded off against record-industry commercialism in favor of a new stripped-down, do-it-yourself aesthetic. Disenchanted by the over-produced pop sensations of the 1980s, bands such as Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Sebadoh, and Sonic Youth began to emerge from relative obscurity into the limelight of music videos, magazine covers, and festivals with their raw amped-up sounds that only bass, drums, and guitars could make. It was a time when, on many levels of popular culture, the underground seized control of the mainstream. In alternative arts communities from Seattle to New York, it seemed that nearly everyone was in a struggling band or lending a hand to one. Meanwhile, that same DIY spirit was driving those whom had been enlisted - budding graphic artists, band members, among others - to create the concert flyers, posters, and other promotional materials that directed the fan bases to the plethora of performances. They too were stripping away the gloss, reducing the methods and the medium until only the essentials were left. A new kind of rock poster had emerged and it broke at least as many established rules as the bands it was designed to promote."--Jacket

Grunge: Das ist Nirvana und Kurt Cobain, Seattle und karierte Schlabber-Hemden. Daß sich hinter Grunge viel mehr verbirgt, zeigt Szene-Kenner Doug Pray in seinem Film. Über drei Jahre lang hat er die Musiker in Seattle beobachtet, 23 Bands, von denen Pearl Jam, Soundgarden und Nirvana die bekanntesten sind. In einer brillanten Mischung aus mitreißenden Konzertszenen und aufschlußreichen Interviews zeigt er die Künstler, ihre Träume, aber auch die Vermarktung ihrer Musik. Der gleiche Mechanismus, der Bands ganz groß rauskommen läßt, ist es auch, der sie dann aussaugt
