Jay Ryan And the Mysterious Production of Posters

100posterscover.jpg

If you’re at all familiar with some of the side projects we do over at Coudal, or you’re a fan of poster art, you’re sure to recognize the name, Jay Ryan. Founder of the supremely talented screenprinting company, The Bird Machine, Jay has designed posters for bands like Jon Spencer, The Decemberists, Stereolab, Fugazi, and Calexico. These past couple of years, Jay keeps getting more and more high profile, what with designing the cover for Michael Chabon’s newest book, “The Final Solution,” to all of the amazing artwork accompanying friend Andrew Bird’s album, “The Mysterious Production of Eggs.” So it only makes sense that striking will the iron is extra hot isn’t a bad idea, and thus, we have Jay’s book, 100 Posters, 134 Squirels. Here’s the scoop:

A greatest-hits collection of the last decade of Jay Ryan’s compelling rock posters, 100 Posters, 134 Squirrels showcases one of underground poster art’s most prolific and talented practitioners. Framed by essays from luminaries in the music, poster, and design worlds – including Steve Albini, Art Chantry, Debra Parr, and Greg Kot- as well as an interview with Jay, 100 Posters, 134 Squirrels offers a unique look into Ryan’s unusual approach to poster art.

Also maybe of interest: Jay’s terrific band Dianogah and Coudal’s short film about his shop, 6 Colors, 1800 Pulls, 2 Dogs.
