Rob Jones Third Man Records And White Stripes Posters

Rob Jones has a bunch of new posters up for sale.

First up is a an uncut sheet of large-size postcards made to celebrate the Record Store Day release of the complete White Stripes’ Peel Sessions. As with the previous set Rob will be signing the back of each with a small drawing or a short missive likely dealing with buying records.

Rob felt the opening of the new Third Man Records was a good enough excuse to revisit his mega-city image made for a series of 2005 TWS Detroit dates.  For those posters he attempted to emulate the city collage Boris Bilinsky created to advertise the film Metropolis.  For this poster he wanted to try an arrangement more aligned with his usual style and ardor for symmetry.

 The original idea for this primary image was to just keep it in print with different colors for the TMR Detroit store, but in light of the Stripes release for RSD Rob thought it might be more interesting to theme it up with the band. Beyond adding the lights this time around, he littered the city with a number of Stripes references including characters and items from past Stripes posters.
