Description

This is the new paperback edition of bestselling hardback. A glorious celebration of popular music in Australia with iconic bands such as INXS, Cold Chisel, Crowded House and Silverchair. Poster designs, street art, takes us on a musical journey from the 1950s until now."Plastered" leads us on a chronological journey through popular music poster art-the jazz, rock and roll, pop and punk scenes in Australia. More than five hundred posters from the past five decades are reproduced, most from the collection of avid archivist Nick Vukovic, and featuring the work of renowned poster artists such as Ian McCausland and Reg Mombassa. Roger Butler from the National Gallery of Australia tells us where poster art sits in the world of fine art and Murray Walding evokes the stories of the artists, promoters and performers that surround these posters.With thousands of posters created every year by hundreds of designers, artists and bands, "Plastered" offers a passing glimpse into the world of popular music poster art. At its most powerful, a single poster can transport you back in time, challenge the way you think or simply work as a beautiful piece of art.show more
