Emek: The Thinking Man’s Poster Artist — Collected Works of Aaarght! released last week from Gingko Press. The book chronicles the career of Emek, who fuses 1960s psychedelia with 1990s postindustrial iconography to form a unique visual language. His medium is the poster, his topic is music – ranging from B.B. King to the Beastie Boys. Emek’s work prompts a rather lofty label, “the thinking man’s poster artist.”
Available now from Gingko. Selected posters feature after the jump.
