Overview

Whether your band is just starting out or has been at it for years, you know it can be difficult to get noticed above the fray. The good news is that discerning music fans are drawn to cool visuals like moths to marquee lights, and with a little creativity, even the most econo-minded bands can come up with posters, tees, record and CD sleeves, stickers, and more that help ensure the locals will come out in force the next time your van pulls up to the club.
 
Author Ruthann Godollei, an artist and printmaking professor at Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota, imparts a wealth of wisdom and experience, describing and showing how to use linocuts and woodcuts, stencils and stamps, letterpresses and screenprints, even photocopiers and laser printers, to turn out memorable and hip flat stock and merch to announce and commemorate your next gig, seven-inch, or release party. In addition to instructional images and a wealth of quick tips, Ruthann includes stellar examples of these media created by artists around the country.
 
Even if you’re not in a band but just interested in affordable media with which to create artwork for public consumption, you’ll find plenty of useful and even outside-the-box ideas and inspiration between these covers. So slip on an old shirt, ink up a roller, grab a stack of paper, and let’s get started!
