We are having a special release party this month at MOTR on 4/30. We will be signing books and selling our variant edition book with a variant cover design! The variant cover will be hand screen printed and signed by the artists and authors. The variant edition book is limited to 50 copies and available first at MOTR Pub, so make sure to get there early to get one! We will be there from 5:00pm until the music starts around 8:00pm(?). This is the first release and signing of the book “Show Posters – The Art and Practice of Making Gig Posters” and includes many Cincinnati/NKY artists and venues, including posters that have been done for the MOTR Pub. Thanks to our friends at MOTR Pub for hosting this event!


Also, Powerhouse artists are designing and printing the poster for the Bully show across the street at The Woodward that same night! Buy a book and get a free hand screen printed and editioned poster for the Bully show!
