Having been a daily visitor to gigposters.com for over 3 years I was thrilled that they had the genius idea of creating a book. I was however dubious whether or not the artworks would live up to my high expectations after seeing some stunning work on their website through the years.
I can tell you, from the point of a graphic designer, you will not be disappointed. I bought the book with the view that even if there's only 5 posters I like it's worth the money. I'm now having to buy a second book as I will end up tearing almost every page out, framing the posters and having them on my wall.
The paper the artwork is printed on is a lovely uncoated stock, bringing out vibrant colours without any tacky shiny shiny feel to it. They have left enough of an edge for easy mounting and the actual size of the artworks is just nicely over A4.
I would warn anyone who buys this though, if you have the intentions of using the posters then buy 2 copies as all the information (which in itself is a fantastic read) is on the back of each poster, so effectively you won't have a book left if you start tearing the pages out and framing them.

If you love rock and you love music posters then this is the book for you. I bought it as a present for a friend and now want my own copy. Everyone who looks at it also wants a copy. The posters are fascinating, and printed in really high quality. They are tear out so can be easily framed. You won't regret buying this.

We were really impressed by the quality of design and creativity page after page.
The massive size and perforated edges are brilliant if you dare to tear pages out for framing.
There are so many brilliant images it's like giving lots of gifts in one, if you buy this for a present.
If this was £50 I'd still buy it, maybe even £70.

I have now bought both volumes of this book and think it's an absolute bargain for the sheer quantity and quality of the artwork. The information about each artist is on a level and enjoyable to read. I cannot recommend it enough for anyone interested in either music or art - you won't be disappointed!
