Concert Posters are quite possibly the foremost populist genre of public artwork—they give event details, yes, but also provide an entry point into a band's larger symbolic intentions. Prominent poster artist Emek knows this well: For world-renowned clients like Radiohead, the Decemberists, and Paul Simon, he tucks political and philosophical statements into concert advertisements, marrying '60s-era psychedelia with steam-punk and sci-fi imagery. As his new book Emek... The Thinking Man's Poster Artist... demonstrates, he's an artist who surpasses the commercial implications of his work.
