A Wonderland of Rock Poster Lettering and Typography

The deadline for PRINT’s Typography & Lettering Awards has been extended to Dec. 2! Enter today.

Mitch Putnam notes in the intro to his new book, OMG Posters, rock posters are a completely unique art form—“they’re drawn, printed (many by hand), hung, and sold to commemorate a one-night event in a single city. It’s hard to get more niche than that. The editions are usually mind-bogglingly low, often one hundred copies or fewer, never to be reprinted.”

Which is part of why Putnam’s new book is such a delight.

Another reason? The interviews with poster creators—and, of course, the array of amazing lettering and type found in their work.

Here is an array of our favorites. Grab a copy here.
