City Slang: New Carl Lundgren book
Detroit poster artist Carl Lundgren has a new book out this July, called The Psychedelic Rock Art of Carl Lundgren, through Hermes Press. You can find it here.
The official description is, “Music inspired, science fiction and fantasy combined in a way that revolutionized poster art of the Psychedelic 1960′s-era. Famous for his rock posters, The Psychedelic Rock Art of Carl Lundgren, a Detroit, Michigan based artist, showcases his posters which were as important to the Detroit Music and Art history as were the music legends themselves; The Who, Jefferson Airplane and Pink Floyd to name a few. The book’s foreword is written by Mitch Ryder, who was lead vocalist of a Detroit 1960′s rock group The Detroit Wheels.
The introduction is by Russ Gibb, a former radio personality and rock promoter from Dearborn, Michigan, who played a major role in the late sixties/early seventies Motor City music scene. Whether looking for something fun, entertaining or reminiscent, this book has it all! The Psychedelic Rock Art of Carl Lundgren presents Carl’s posters in a unique way that will evoke emotion and memories.”
We’ve had a preview – there’s a whole ton of great art, and a foreword by Mitch Ryder.
