Desert Highways own Anthony Moore is extremely excited about the impending release of Rockin Australia, not only as he wrote an article on poster design included in the book set, but also because this is going to be the premier collection of Australian rock concert posters ever released!
Taken from the site:
“ROCKIN AUSTRALIA allows the reader a rare glimpse inside the private collection of author James Anfuso who has spent the last 25 years putting together the most significant collection of Australian concert posters anywhere in the world. This limited edition book brings together for the first time 2255 posters including many extremely rare and legendary posters like those for the 1968 Who / Small Faces tour and the 1972 Led Zeppelin tour.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to journey through our rock’n roll past – perhaps to re-ignite memories of concerts seen, of bands loved or simply to fantasise about the many concerts or bands you wished you had the opportunity to see.
ROCKIN AUSTRALIA is self published and designed by lovers of rock’n roll for lovers of rock’n roll and is unique in so many ways – not only does the rarity of this poster collection make these books so desirable but for the first time the integrity of the poster has been given the prominence it deserves with over 450 posters featured as full page reproductions and no page having more than 4 poster images.
ROCKIN AUSTRALIA is an exclusive edition of only 666 copies; each individually hand-numbered. This premium quality hard cover publication of three Volumes (265×335) is housed in a special custom designed slipcase and contains over 1200 pages.”
