The best-selling visual history of the rock concert poster, now available at an irresistible price Electric, outrageous, erotic, rebellious--rock concert posters are the visual equivalent of the music they advertise. The Art of Rock traces the history of this energizing art form from the bold letterpress posters advertising Elvis’s early shows, through the multicolored fantasies of the psychedelic era, to the avant-garde collages of new wave and punk. More than 1,500 posters and other graphics--tickets, backstage passes, buttons, handbills--are presented in their original blazing color (or their stark black and white, as the case may be). The text features dozens of exclusive interviews with musicians, concert promoters, and the poster artists themselves, including legends like Stanley Mouse, Alton Kelley, or Wes Wilson--who also designed the cover of this book. A visual journey through thirty years of rock and roll, as well as a valuable reference, The Art of Rock is an essential volume for every music lover (and art lover).

"The great glory of the American stage is Broadway, and what is acknowledged as the best of Broadway is the best of American theater. Here is the story of four decades of great American theater: not just tales of stars- though these abound in this volume- but also of playwrights, lyricists, composers, directors, choreographers, producers, and designers. For heartbreak and triumph, their behind-the-scenes adventures often outdo anything presented onstage." -- Book Jacket

"The Art of the Dead showcases the poster art that emerged from the streets of San Francisco in 1964 and 1966. It traces the cultural, political, and historical influences of posters as art back to Japanese wood blocks through Bell Époque, on to the Beatniks, the Free Speech Movement, and the Acid Tests. Featuring interviews and profiles of the key artists, including Rick Griffin, Stanley "Mouse" Miller, Alton Kelley, Wes Wilson, and Victor Moscoso. The book uses Grateful Dead as the vehicle to tell the story of poster art. The book follows a chronological evolution of the art from the band's origination in 1965 through Jerry Garcia's death in 1995. The book is in four-color throughout, featuring iconic and rare images as well as extensive "process" material, including sketches, original art, blue lines, film, and printing plates. It also includes essays by Greil Marcus, Peter Coyote, and Victoria Binder, as well as essays on the elements of the printing process from the original art to the final poster. "--
