Homegrown: Austin Music Posters 1967 to 1982

A new book from UT Press, has just been released: Homegrown: Austin Music Posters 1967 to 1982

It was compiled and authored by Alan Schaefer, of the Whitliff Collection and Texas State University. My work is included in it, as is the work of my colleagues Kerry Awn, Ken Featherston, Jim Franklin, Henry Gonzalez, Jack Jackson, Guy Juke, Bill Narum, Micael Priest, Sam Yeates, and Dale Wilkins. This is a comprehensive collection of Austin poster art from that period. If you are curious about how Austin got it’s musical reputation and garnered the title, Live Music Capitol of the World, this book is an indispensable visual explanation of how that came to be. Beautifully done, with excellent reproductions of some of Austin’s finest music posters, this volume is a must for anyone interested in this art. It is an especially important resource for those who collect Austin music art.
