Love music? Love illustration? Want to know more about some of the best musicians ever to record—from Bowie and the Beastie Boys to The Smiths and St. Vincent? Then Sound and Vision is for you.
Featuring 100 of the coolest artists from the last five decades, Sound and Vision reveals the influencers and tastemakers who have helped to shape the contemporary music scene. Award-winning illustrator and comic artist John Riordan profiles cult musicians from genres including punk, indie, alternative, hip-hop, and electronic music. Not only does John create amazing illustrations, he also outlines key works from the artists and provides engaging trivia to accompany each entry. Enlightening, often amusing, and always stunning to look at, Sound and Vision is a unique blend of the aesthetic and the acoustic and is an essential addition to any music fan’s collection.
This music trivia book is so good. I love the cartoons of all the artists and band but also some of the most interesting tidbits of some of music's trailblazers.
