Overview

Show Posters: The Art and Practice of Making Gig Posters by Pat Jones, Ben Nunery

Design meets music in a one-of-a-kind tour!

Powerhouse Factories takes you beyond album covers to teach you all about the art that drives today's biggest shows and festivals. Show Posters offers a visual timeline of the big players in the music industry, from The Black Keys and Passion Pit to Phantogram and Real Estate, as well as the posters that launched their shows--and the designers' careers.

Show Posters features step-by-step instructions to guide you through screen printing, hand lettering, and yes, even Xeroxing your way to recreating iconic, kickass posters. The high-energy rock-and-roll artists of Powerhouse Factories will coach you on how to hook up with bands, managers, and promoters, and create an original, limited poster for one of their shows.
