During the course of the 1990s, artists, musicians and fans began to re-conceive the art of poster making, turning away from the mass-produced products of corporate rock to re-embrace the DIY aesthetic of the punk era. With more than 250 posters by over 50 designers, this book is an introduction to the world of the concert poster art of the 1990s and the cutting-edge music it was created for - from Nirvana and Pearl Jam to Sonic Youth and the Velvet Underground.

Spencer Drate, creative director, designer, CD consultant, and author, has created award-winning CD-packaging for many popular recording artists, including Bon Jovi, Lou Reed, U2, The Ramones, The Velvet Underground, Joan Jett, and Talking Heads. He has written several books, received many design awards, and has been interviewed by many leading publications. He lives in New York City. Art Chantry, heralded as one of the kings of graphic design in the rock and punk-rock community, has been producing posters, album covers, ads, logos, and magazine covers since 1978. He has been both the subject and author/illustrator of several books on graphic design and the Seattle punk culture. He lives in St. Louis.From Publishers Weekly:
Graphic art takes the spotlight in this collection of "swag"-the decorative concert ads that festoon lampposts, billboards and teenagers' walls. CD-packager Drate celebrates what he calls the "global poster movement" and features the work of 50 artists, from established graphic designers like Frank Kozik to newbies like Serigraphie Populaire, a duo who print all their posters by hand. Although many of the posters showcase the grunge and indie bands that sprung up during this new era of graphic design, there are samples from some mainstream musical acts who jumped on the wagon too: Bob Dylan and Ozzie Osbourne find their swag alongside Pearl Jam and Radiohead. The reprinted posters date from 1993 to 2002, with the nexus of work centered on the late 90s to the present (the subtitle is a bit misleading). Aside from Seattle designer Art Chantry's historical tour of rock posters in the introduction, the prose is minimal, leaving plenty of space for the surreal, satirical, raw sometimes ghastly vision of "classic sleazeball American trash culture." 250 color illustrations.
