Product description

From the Inside Flap

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!

From the Back Cover

Whether your band is still woodshedding or touring the nation, here's how you can craft its identity with your own unique gig posters, T-shirts, record and CD sleeves, stickers, and more. Artist and printmaking professor Ruthann Godollei shares her wealth of experience creating gig posters and teaching bands how to make their own. Inside, she describes and shows a range of media accessible to even the most econo-minded bands--linocuts, stencils, stamps, photocopy art, and screenprints--and how to utilize them to create memorable posters, swag, and merch. Godollei also includes galleries of inspirational examples from artists around the country. Music fans and writers remember cool and creative visuals, and this book gives you the tools and information you need to make sure your gigs and records get noticed.

Format: Paperback
Contemporary printmaking becomes ever more sophisticated, using both traditional and advanced digital processes, and often requiring sophisticated and expensive equipment. So it is refreshing, and indeed stimulating, to come across a book such as this that makes printmaking quicker, easier and more appropriate for a wide range of home, band, gig or business applications. If you want to make a small run of party or gig invitations, some posters, some covers for demo CDs, or any other such purpose, then this book will offer you a wide range of possibilities. Ruthann Godollei is a college professor in Minnesota, USA, highly skilled in both her teaching and printmaking work, and at the same time closely in touch with the guerrilla a rebel printmaking movements in the USA that have attracted much attention in recent years, and which have also been responsible for an amazing amount of regeneration in what had become a somewhat moribund field of the visual arts. She is also a darn good communicator whose enthusiasm bubbles over in this book.

The book is detailed, with copious illustrations and diagrams, but with a readable text, often with a light touch, as well as being very informative. If you have wanted to get down and dirty with making some prints, but have been put off by the expense and lack of access to the necessary gear, then this book is for you. It will show you clearly how to go about getting your words and images out there, amazing your friends and neighbourhoods and - who knows - might even lead you into a lucrative sideline producing stuff for others. Printmaking has always been one of the most democratic forms of the visual arts... now this book takes it to a whole new level of approachability. And, you know what? It is also a whole lot of fun!

4.0 out of 5 stars A fun take on making gig posters. 2 Aug. 2016
By GK - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I found this to be a pretty well written and informative book. While it was easy to read and gets into the basic principles and how-to's, it seemed as if the book was geared more toward the novice/beginner rather than suitable for a pro-am/professional who has been doing them for a while. Not that you couldn't learn something new or different way but definitely better suited for the beginner. There was various tutorials demonstrating different styles and techniques with easy to understand illustrations.

This is a superb book for all types of printmakers/art-lovers. It's easy to read and gets into the basics, while still providing professional tips to improve printing. I also enjoyed the amount of great examples to show what can be done with the techniques.
