Gig Posters is one of our favourite books of 2010, collecting some cracking examples of rock show flyers featuring artwork from both music specialists and non-genre illustrators such as Tara McPherson. The best part was that the 101 posters are detachable ready for framing and hanging on your wall. Gig Posters II has the same concept, bringing together 101 more posters featuring the artwork for David V D Andrea, Peter Cardoso, Graham Pilling, Hatch Show Print for acts including Black Keys, Flight of the Conchords, Ice-T, Sufjan Stevens, Built to Spill, Decemberists, The Hold Steady, and Slayer and Mastodon. The posters are drawn largely from the genres of indie, rock, metal and out-and-out weirdness. Each poster has an interview with the artist concerned, discussing their work, inspirations, techniques for the poster shown, with one full page of artwork, and up to eight smaller examples of their work shown. --Digital Arts magazine, November, 2011 Gig Posters Volume 2 is a fabulous collection of 101 ready-to-frame poster --A --Alternative magazine online, December, 2011 This meticulously compiled book lets you instantly upgrade any room without the need for an afternoon sifting past One Direction posters on an HMV rack, or a traipse around an art boutique.

Clay Hayes is the owner of gigposters.com, a community that showcases what seems to be an infinite collection. The owner of this book, however, can do more than just look at pictures. There are 101 ready-to-frame posters featured here, measuring 11×14, each perforated and ready to be ripped out and hung on your bedroom wall, from Queens of the Stone Age to Slayer to John Mellencamp to The Black Keys.
While the main attraction of this book is the collection of reprinted posters, there are also insights and interviews with the artists that created them. Hayes reveals the artists' beginnings and influences, preferred media and impressions of the poster community. Gig Posters Volume 2 is a great book for fans of music and art.
