As Mitch Putnam explains in the introduction to the new book focused on concert posters, OMG Posters: A Decade of Rock Art, he started his website about limited-edition art back in 2007 because no one else was focusing their attention on limited-edition posters and art prints. It remains a daily destination for "poster nerds, film buffs, art directors, record fondlers, illustration fanatics, comic fanboys, design purists…" according to artist Aaron Horkey. 

In the book's foreword, graphic designer Olly Moss writes that posters remain his "best-loved form of design," since they are a "test of everything: color, composition, communication, typography and draftsmanship." The collection in the book includes gorgeous work by some of the world's most talented illustrators and designers – including Olly Moss, Ken Taylor, Dan Grzeca, Richey Beckett and many others – many of them sold to commemorate a one-night event. Here's a selection of some of our favorites.
