Rock posters are as vibrant and varied as the music they celebrate - and more popular today than ever. With imagery that ranges from eye-popping and crassly outrageous to subtle and esoteric, these graphic manifestos of rock rebellion have matured into a full-blown phenomenon, four decades after the first great wave of rock art roared out of San Francisco in the 1960s. In Swag 2: Rock Posters of the '90s and Beyond, Spencer Drate and Judith Salavetz have collected a fascinating assortment of images created by 50 of the most important poster artists working today - from 1960s pioneers such as Jim Phillips to gifted painters to graphic design studios as diverse as Patent Pending Industries and Asterik Studio. Swag 2 is a raucous compendium of contemporary rock art that provides a kaleidoscopic snapshot of our time.
