A new addition to Material is this fantastic collection of modern-day music poster design brought to you by renowned Graphic artist Jason Munn and his innovative one man design studio The Small Stakes.

Collected here for the first time are over 150 of his iconic posters for various bands, including Beck, Wilco, Built to Spill, the Flaming Lips, the Pixies, and many more. Unique in their conceptual elegance, Munn's silk-screened posters are widely appreciated for perfectly evoking each artist or band's character and distinctive sound. With a foreword by Death Cab for Cutie's bassist Nicolas Harmer, an interview conducted by prolific poster artist Jay Ryan, and 6-color printing that showcases metallic silver and gold, this book is a beautiful celebration of art and music.

Jason Munn creates his award-winning design work from his independent design studio in Oakland, California. His work is featured in numerous exhibitions and is in several museum collections, including the SFMOMA and the Denver Art Museum.
