The Small Stakes: Music Posters

A guy at work has the book, The Small Stakes: Music Posters and it’s really great to look through. I purchased the She and Him poster a few months ago and really like the style of artist Jason Munn. It’s now on my list of books to purchase.

“Renowned graphic artist Jason Munn the one-man operation behind the studio The Small Stakes is a leader in modern-day music poster design. Collected here for the first time are over 150 of his iconic posters for various bands, including Beck, Wilco, Built to Spill, the Flaming Lips, the Pixies, and many more. Unique in their conceptual elegance, Munn’s silk-screened posters are widely appreciated for perfectly evoking each artist or band’s character and distinctive sound. With a foreword by Death Cab for Cutie’s bassist Nicolas Harmer, an interview conducted by prolific poster artist Jay Ryan, and 6-color printing that showcases metallic silver and gold, this book is a beautiful celebration of art and music.”
