Plenty to look at with 239 pages of full colour and showing the talents of 29 artist with varying styles. Printed on great quality paper, making this a substantial beauty of a publication!
Bits from the book:
"There seems to be a growing interest in what was once thought of as the disregarded arts - arts that, until recently, have been considered commercially tainted or non-academic. These endeavours include rock and roll, promotional posters, underground comic books, lurid pulp magazine illustrations, hot rod and motorcycle imagery, tattoo art, surfer and skateboard art, carnival graphics, (especially related to sideshows), pin up girly art, and of course public and graffiti, plus numerous other forms of idiosyncratic visual stimuli."
It's defiantly one to check out!
