Since 2001, Gigposters.com has been the Internet's premier resource for rock-show poster art; the site's massive online database showcases more than 100,000 posters from 10,000 different designers, including all of today's top poster studios. "Gig Posters Volume 2" highlights 700-plus masterpieces from the archives, including 101 perforated and ready-to-frame posters for acts like Cee Lo Green, Crystal Castles, Vampire Weekend, Wilco, Arcade Fire, and more. Among the many designers contributing to this collection are James Quigly, Pete Cardoso, Alan Hynes, the Ames Brothers, and many more. Packaged in an oversized 11-by-14-inch paperback, "Gig Posters Volume 2" is a spectacular compilation of rock show art (and one hell of a cheap way to decorate a dorm room or apartment).
