It's been a long time in the making but Todd Slater has received his books and they are up on www.toddslater.net. Todd has talked about it some on social media but in case you haven't heard a massive book was released last year featuring his gig poster work from 2004-2015 and it's pretty remarkable.
Todd talks about the book:
I've been approached twice by separate publishers throughout the last 4 years about putting together a book but resisted due to compromises on things like hardcover, larger page size and the actual number of pages. The patience ended up paying off and after meeting with Chris from the Flood Gallery during SXSW in 2014 and I knew I had found the right partner. Flood has produced a stunning product and you can see some past work here on David Bowie's Golden Years to The Cure Photographs along with Unseen Beatles Photos. Upon meeting with them it became apparent to me that they weren't cutting corners and that the art truly transcended everything else. The Rock Poster Art of Todd Slater is hardback, clocks in at 288 pages and measures 13.1x10.5 inches. It is a coffee table book in the truest sense of the word.Package 1: $60. A copy of the hardback book with one randomly inserted print. The prints are signed and numbered to 200 copies.
We organized the book by year starting with 2004 and ending with 2015. It shows a nice progression in my work and also features full page images of the prints; no thumbnails exist!
There's other nice surprises spread throughout the pages including a foreward that's both thoughtful and hilarious by the unfuckwithable Rob Jones. You'll find a number of quotes throughout the pages from my peers as well. Please visit their sites and support them, I'm honored they would be *forced* to say such nice things about me: Here is a list of the contributors in the order they fall in the book: Methane Studios, Jeff Kleinsmith, Ken Taylor, Brad Klausen, Jason Edmiston, James Flames, DKNG, Jason Munn, Dan Stiles, Emek, Mark Brickey, Kevin Tong, Jay Ryan, Tyler Stout & Chuck Sperry.
So here's the goods: anyone who purchases the book from me gets one exclusive 9x12 print randomly. There are 4 total (each S/N to 200) and the only way to get them is to buy the book. The Flood Gallery has their own 4 that are exclusive to their site. The print will be inserted into the book in its own poly bag to prevent surface scratching. Random orders will receive a foil version of the print and are numbered to 30 copies each. Also, all books from me come signed and are bubbled wrapped and packaged in a thick literature mailer. I've got roughly 200 left of these and considering the cost to ship a palette from London to the US I suspect this will be the only time I have these for sale.
Package 2: $150. A copy of the hardback book with all 4 prints signed and numbered to 200 copies. 25 packages available.
Package 3: $225. A copy of the hardback book with all 4 foil prints numbered to 30 copies. 10 packages available.
