Paradiso Posters, 1968-2008
Housed in a former church in the centre of Amsterdam, Paradiso has long been the cherished concert venue for a wide variety of cutting edge musical acts which have invariably been promoted through a standard format poster. These posters are reproduced here in this extensive survey, which illustrates both the wide-ranging musical agenda that the venue has followed and the graphic skills of a range of different designers including Martin Kaye, Max Kisman, Niels Meulman, Experimental Jetset, Parra and Machine. Clearly presented, illustrated throughout with color reproductions, and introduced by an explanatory essay, this publication will thrill both music and graphic design aficionados alike. Over four decades of design work, organized in a loosely chronological order, create a capsule collection of Dutch music-related design from 1968 to 2008.
