For all of us who remember many of these posters it's a good trip back to another time. And for those who missed that whole era this is a nice signpost for a time in the late '60s/early '70s when music was really important, not just a life-style choice.

Release Date August 15, 2015. More than 1,500 posters and other graphics-tickets, backstage passes, buttons, handbills-are presented in their original blazing color (or their stark black and white, as the case may be).

Note: Size of the book is 4 x 4 3/8 inchesFrom the 1950s through today, here is the complete visual history of the rock concert poster: the funkiest bills advertising Elvis, B.B. King, and Howlin' Wolf; the multicolored psychedelic hallucinations promoting the Grateful Dead, Dylan, and the Doors; the deliciously tasteless art for the Sex Pistols, Crime, and the Clash. From the Red Dog Saloon in San Francisco, where the psychedelic scene started, to CBGB, New York's punk Mecca, and beyond. 1,500 images searched out world-wide from clubs, attics, and bedrooms—as well as more formal collections—are reproduced in their original blazing colors.Replete with firsthand history—including exclusive interviews with scores of insiders, poster artists, musicians, and promoters—this is the ultimate high for the rock music fan, required reading for the poster collector, a treasure trove for the graphic artist, and a riotous feast for anyone who digs pop culture.

This large size edition of this book has been o.o.p. for a number of years. The only edition available until now was the much smaller edition-almost a pocket-size version. Just be aware that this new edition (printed in Oct. 2015) is a bit smaller than the 80's edition by about an inch or so. The original hardcover edition was approximately 13" X 11" X 1 3/4" (the last measurement including the hardcovers), and had 516 pages.

This new edition has the same number of pages as the earlier edition. Plus there's no dust jacket, but this new edition's cover is embossed which is pretty cool. I just thought if you were familiar with the original edition you might assume this newest edition is identical to that one. But when all is said and done the slightly smaller dimensions is a minor quibble. This new edition is well worth owning if you don't already have the original version. The printing is nicely done and the essays are informed. Grab this while it's still available if you're into rock poster history--and if you love rock and poster art from those years--when posters became a new art form (1950's and beyond), this is for you. For all of us who remember many of these posters it's a good trip back to another time. And for those who missed that whole era this is a nice signpost for a time in the late '60s/early '70s when music was really important, not just a life-style choice.

So you can look inside the book for the contents etc.

What separates this "The Art of Rock" book is that it has "The Numbered Series" for the Family Dog posters FD1 to FD144 and "The Numbered Series" for the "Bill Graham" posters BG1 to BG287.
And there is a whole lot more!
This book is not cheap, but it is the one to buy.

Please note that the vast majority of negative, one star reviews for this book has to do with the fact that there are two size versions of this book, one large, and one small. Almost all the negative reviews have to do with the purchaser getting the small version of this book, and do not have to do with the contents. (I got the larger version of this book.)

Also very good it "Classic Rock Posters," (2012), Mick Farren and Dennis Loren.
One to avoid is "Art of Modern Rock: The Poster Explosion." This book is not very good.

While this book certainly has a lot of concert posters featured in it, most are very small as they cram anywhere from 6 to 12 on some pages. I was hoping each poster would get its own page. I thought the book focused far too much on the San Francisco psychedelic posters and not nearly enough on other genres. If you want a bunch of tiny pictures of posters of shows by the Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, The Doors and Country Joe & the Fish, then this is the book for you. If you want to see full size posters of lots of classic rock bands, look elsewhere.

THE ART OF ROCK is a fantastic compilation of the posters that advertised the rock bands that played in the ballrooms and theaters during the San Francisco Sound days of the late 1960's. These posters advertised the acid rock concerts of such bands as The Grateful Dead, Big Brother, Quicksilver, and Jimi Hendrix in brilliant colors that captured the psychedelic era. These beautiful pieces of art are now highly collectable and created by such artists as Rick Griffin, Stanley Mouse , Alton Kelly & Victor Moscoso. There are 2 versions of this book ~ One is a very large " coffeetable " book and the other is a mini artbook. Both are quite enjoyable.
Justie
Really cool book. Has lots of album covers and posters. Also super heavy. My only complaint, and it's a small one, is that a lot of the book has many pictures per page. I was kind of hoping for a lot of full page art so you could really see the details. Still, I love it. If you like music art, pick this up.

But it’s all there! The price was right. It will fit in the palm of your hand.

A GOOD BOOK FOR WHAT IT,S WORTH. SOME REALLY GREAT R&B, ROCK-N-ROLL SOUL POSTERS, A GOOD BOOK TO ADD TO YOUR COLLECTION.
Glad to see it reprinted at an affordable price. A rock poster lovers encyclopedia, the most revered reference to poster art ever done!
