From a Basement in Seattle

In case you're wearing down the edges of your Pearl Jam vs. Ames Brothers book, now you can divert your attention.  You can pre-order your copy of From a Basement in Seattle: The Poster Art of Brad Klausen now on Amazon.

From the product description:

An extensive look into the creative process through which artist Brad Klausen generates imagery for rock posters for Pearl Jam, Built to Spill, Queens of the Stone Age, and others. Included alongside the image of each finished poster are sketches and detailed commentary of the story behind the execution and concept of the individual designs.

Brad Klausen grew up in southern California and moved to Seattle in 1999 to begin a nine-year career as the in-house graphic designer for the world-famous rock band Pearl Jam. In July 2007 he launched Artillery Design, his one-man design shop where he continues to make posters for Pearl Jam, Built to Spill, Widespread Panic, and many other bands. He still lives in Seattle.
