Maximum Plunder: The Poster Art of Mike King

Mike King, Paul Herring, and Shawna Gore
$90.00 hardcover

This gorgeously illustrated, oversized book is a thirty year retrospective of Mike King’s striking work reproducing over 1,000 posters in full color. A Portland native, Mike has created more concert posters than any other graphic designer – numbering in the 5,000-6,000 range. From Punk, Alt, Metal and Jazz, to Classic Rock, Blues, Spoken-word and Pop – for arena shows, to independent clubs, and everything in between, as well as influential music festivals such as Sasquatch! and Bonaroo – the cross-section of genres, venues, and concerts covered by his work is staggering! Maximum Plunder also offers anecdotal bits and pieces concerning the history of live music in Portland and the rest of the Northwest.
