Look, there's a reason why we run our Poster of the Week contest: The poster artists around here are awesome. Really. Go back and look over our Poster of the Week archives. Those submissions are great.

Really. And not just because we say so, either. Let me explains.

On July 19, you see, a U.K. company will release an eBook called The Wall: Modern Day Music Posters. Per the book's promotional Facebook page, the whole idea behind the book goes as follows:

"The Wall contains 9 chapters of the most influential music posters of recent years. This anthology presents little quotes and blurbs from over 85 of the artists and designers that created them, to help paint more of a picture along side each poster in the book."

And guess what? Two local designers will be appearing in these pages. Who? Hit the jump to find out.

No surprise to see that recurring winners Magnificent Beard made the cut. Or, even that DC9 contributor Lance Lester did either. Click the links on each of their names to see some of their award-winning designs.

Congratualtions to both of them. Very well-deserved.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
