So much of the time these days, it seems that concert posters are created soley for the purpose of being sold as merchandise or commemoratives. After I hand a stack of posters off to the promoter, it is usually out of my hands. How they are used is up to them. It does my heart good to see my letterpress posters being used for what they are intended, to promote a show. Here's my Hella poster in all its glory. I saw it on the street and had to snap a picture.

This is a really geat little letterpress printed broadside I got the other day from the nice folks at One Heart Press in San Francisco. It is a Cranes Lettra paper promotion, homage to Bradbury Thompson's Alphabet 26, designed by Michael Osborne. The print job is outstanding.

Picked up one of these at Flatstock in Austin. A limited edition screen printed reproduction of one of Jim Flora's most famous album covers. If you don't know about Jim Flora, you should. You can learn all you need to know at www.jimflora.com.
This piece was printed by my buddies at Aesthetic Apparatus in cooperation with Irwin Chusid (the author of two Jim Flora books) and the Flora estate.
Flatstock 12 was a huge success. Amazing how this thing has taken off. 125 poster booths this year and some of the best work I've seen yet. Thanks to all the hard working folks in the American Poster Institute (www.americanposterinstitute.com) once again for pulling this thing off. See you in Chicago.
