Castle Face Records' have announced their first book. Exploded Globes is an annotated collection of posters by John Dwyer from the period 1999-2016. “For our very first Castle Face book, we have a selection from the dusty vaults of our own John Dwyer’s prodigious poster output. Bold, brash, lovingly imperfect prints embellished with some stories of the nights in question as told by the man himself...you can’t miss out on this or your coffee table will never forgive you.”
From the introduction: “ In this book, in no particular order, are the handbills, fliers and posters I’ve made since 1999 or so to present. The style doesn’t vary all that much…similar content…but I think I’ve gotten slowly better over all these years… I’m still a bit too impatient of a person to make “perfect” prints… but I think part of that is my style: a mess sometimes. Nothing wrong with that. I’m really not a huge fan of the typical rock poster. It can be a tedious format to look at, especially after years of playing shows and a million posters, so I try to make something from a bit of a different place. Thanks, and I hope you enjoy, maybe you were at one of these shows? Maybe you thought, who made this shit poster? It was me, cheers, JPD”.
In hardcover, Exploded Globes is casewrapped in crimson cloth with gold foil lettering, so it looks nice on your shelf. Out March 24th.
