The Art of British Rock
Before you could stream live concerts and every band had its own blog, fans looked to flyers, posters, and handbills to keep them up to date on the latest must-see shows. As the music scene incubated across the pond, with a revolutionary current sweeping youth culture, that rockin’, poppy, groovy, and gritty energy was ushered into the British aesthetic by a group of in-tune designers. From the painstaking, handcrafted designs of mid-century artists, to the surreal imagery of the 70s, to 80s punk collage and the dreamy computer-generated work of today, this anthology traces the eccentric visual history that accompanies any Anglophile’s vinyl collection. Created by journalist Mike Evans and music-loving designer Paul Palmer-Edwards, this compilation features 350 color illustrations and countless historical details, which capture the character that UK artists have contributed to the rock ‘n’ roll vibe. Whether you’re the king or queen of the local concert scene, this eye-opening volume will take the spotlight at the center of your coffee table!
