Since 2001 has been the Internet’s first and best resource for rock-show poster art; their massive online database showcases more than 90,000 posters from 7,000 different designers including all of today’s top poster studios. Gig Posters Volume I ($40) highlights the 700+ best examples in their collection including 101 perforated and ready-to-hang posters for bands such as Radiohead Wilco the Decemberists the Shins Arcade Fire Sleater-Kinney and more. Among the many designers contributing to this collection are Rob Jones (of White Stripes fame) The Decoder Ring (house artists for Modest Mouse) Patent Pending Tara McPherson and more. Packaged in an oversized 11-by-14-inch paperback Gig Posters Volume I is a spectacular compilation of rock show art (and one hell of a cheap way to decorate a dorm room or apartment).

  1. I purchased this book from Urban Outfitters in Brooklyn. Its awesome as the full page posters- showcase silkscreen artists throughout the country (USA) in addition to the indy rock artists. They are also perforated- so you can frame them and tell your friends they came from a book.
