5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastico! 29 Dec 2010
This is a fantastic little book, in its own right, but perhaps also as a complimentary and more easily digestable companion to the 'Art of Modern Rock' (much larger, weightier and more expensive).

This is much neater, both in form and content, as it's about 'notebook' sized, yet is absolutely packed from cover to cover with gloriously glossy 'Poster Girls'.

Yes, the opening section explains that it might not be considered by many to be terribly 'PC', but that you can't deny that the posters, the shapes, the forms, the spectrum of ideas that this contains.

It's set out into genres / sections, with a short introduction to each, that sets the tone and gives a little historical background or opints towards possible inspirations, but the thing that anyone picking this up will want is the full-page, full-colour, images of the 'Rock' posters (proper, unedited images, that often show the pencil marks as well).

There's a short footer with each, so that the artists (both bands and creator) and dates are correctly noted.

I genuinely love this lil' book. There's a fine selection of different artists, styles, etc all carefully stitched together, to flow along the book's central theme.

It's a bit of a bargain as well, given the quality of the images.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty cool little book 7 Feb 2009
By TattooGuy821 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Lots of ref. pieces and concepts for layout - more on the graphic design side of the house - but can be helpful for tattoo artists looking for reference... worth the cash def.

3.0 out of 5 stars Art of Modern Rock: Poster Girls 6 Jan 2009
By Louise Macaulay - Published on Amazon.com
While I found "The Art of Modern Rock" extremely well executed and put together, I found this book not as invigorating. Many of the poster girls were half fast and too many of the same artist appeared in the book. I still use it as I am a poster artist myself however I find the original coffee table book far more useful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not As Great as the Mega Book of Posters 8 April 2013
By SAL - Published on Amazon.com

Not as great as the mega book of posters but this and book 1 still have some good ones to look a for ideas and inspiration.
This mini book is not for kiddies though. That's for sure.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unbeatable for the price 1 July 2009
By Wii Bag - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I saw this book at the Rock and Roll Museum in Seattle, and when I got home I regretted not picking it up. Chock full of all the guys you see at Posterpop.com; could not believe how cheap I was able to get it for. I'm certain it was at least 2x at the museum gift shop. All in all a lot of good stuff to look at. People say the first one is better, I can't comment as I haven't seen #1. I'd say if you can score it under $10, you can't lose.

A really good book to be inspired by. A must for any graphics artist, whether veteran or newbie. A wonderful reference book specific to that genre that should have a permanent place on the bookshelf!
