100 Posters/134 Squirrels
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.
What people are saying…
“Jay Ryan’s decade of rock-postering has produced some superb and arresting work . . . I cannot think of a better visual advertisement for underground rock: posters that are wild, articulate, and well made; posters with both a heart and a brain.”
“Not only a gorgeous catalog of the artist’s many memorable posters, but a history of sorts of the Chicago underground rock scene in the last 15 years.”
“Jay Ryan takes the germ of an idea and makes it uniquely great. His genius is in knowing what matters and what doesn’t . . . His genius is in having the image matter.”
An updated and revised greatest-hits collection of Jay Ryan’s first decade of compelling posters, framed by essays from luminaries in the music, design, and poster worlds—including Steve Albini, Art Chantry, Greg Kot, and Debra Parr.
