A 2010 reissue of Jay Ryan’s underground hit book, with new material added, and essays by Steve Albini, Art Chantry, Greg Kot, and Debra Parr.
JAY RYAN has been making screenprinted concert posters in Chicago since 1995. He learned to print at the now-legendary Screwball Press, and started his own print shop, The Bird Machine, in the basement of his apartment building in 1999. He served as vice president of the American Poster Institute from 2002–2007. In 2007, Crain’s Chicago Business included Ryan on their prestigious “40 Under 40” list, and the following year, Time Out Chicago named him a “Chicago Cultural Hero.” His books include 100 Posters/134 Squirrels, Animals and Objects In and out of Water, and No One Told Me Not to Do This.
