An underground movement founded on electronic dance music and a utopian vision, the global phenomenon known as rave culture has proven a well-spring of some wildly innovative graphic design, manifested nowhere more than in North America.

The book provides a brief overview of the history of file American rave scene, explores how graphic sensibilities vary regionally, and chronicles the progression of styles, forms, and means of production in flyer design, from crude photocopy to tray ant five-color foldout. Artistically inspiring, this book is also a record of the parties themselves, as the flyers include dates, locations, and names of DJs, bands, promoters, and sponsors.
