Ross Andru & Mike EspositoRoss Andru & Mike Esposito's Get Lost ... Book
Hermes, 1950s. New Copy ... $8.99 29.99
One of the greatest publications to ever rip off Mad Magazine – and an early effort from the team of Ross Andru and Mike Esposito – later known for famous work at both Marvel and DC Comics! Get Lost follows from the early Mad comic book style – and features lots of well-done parodies of popular genres – film, fiction, and more! The writing is good, but the art is even better – very angular and edgey, at a level that's quite different than any other later work from the team – definitely influenced by the work of early Mad artists, but quite unique as well. The book brings together all three issues of the short-lived publication in glorious full color – and also features an interview with Mike Esposito on the fate of the comic as well. 96 pages, color, oversize.

Alessandro BazanAlessandro Bazan – Jazz Paintings ... Book
Charta (Italy), 2006. New Copy ... $4.99 34.95
A series of paintings from Sicilian painter Alessandro Bazan – who takes key inspiration from jazz, but also uses the music to inspire other images as well! The paintings inside have a feel that's similar to the one on the cover – bold brushstrokes portraying musicians and audiences, plus a few more scene-based images. There's only a few portraits of famous artists – such as Miles Davis, Charles Mingus, or Jaco Pastorius – and many of the images are more impressionistic. Book is 80 pages, full color, softcover, and with text in English and Italian. Book

Peter BlechaSonic Boom – The History Of Northwest Rock, From "Louie Louie" To "Smells Like Teen Spirit" (paperback) ... Book
Backbeat Books, 2009. New Copy ... $2.99 19.99
Not a biography of one-time Spacemen 3 mainman – but a very cool look at the wealth of great guitar rock that emanated from the Pacific Northwest from the late 50s onward! There must be something in the water up there, because countless great guitar giants have hailed from Washington State and nearby locals – artists as diverse as Jimi Hendrix and Kurt Cobain, and a huge host of important guitar groups like The Ventures, Wailers, Kingsmen, and others! The book wisely gives its strongest focus to the 60s – with a wealth of information on the local scenes and small labels who really brought the Northwest sound to the rest of the world – then follows with a bit more on the 70s and 80s, as well as the 90s wave of punk and grunge. 304 pages, softcover, with some black and white images.

Jonathan Raimes & Lakshmi BhaskaranRetro Graphics – A Visual Sourcebook To 100 Years Of Graphic Design ... Book
Chronicle, 2007. New Copy ... $4.99 24.95
A really inspirational book based around the history of 20th Century design – put together with vivid pages that allow you to steal all the best ideas, and integrate them into your own work! The package spans the most important design decades of the century – and pulls together vivid images from magazines, advertisements, posters, flyers, and even typographic elements too! The volume is designed as a "sourcebook" to give designers new ideas and inspiration – but it reads well enough as an art book on its own, thanks to key historical details and information on artists and illustrators. 175 pages, softcover, in full color.

Toni BrownRelix, The Book – The Grateful Dead Experience – 30 Years Of Mind Melting Art, Interviews, Anecdotes & More ... Book
Backbeat Books, 2009. New Copy ... $4.99 29.99
A hefty tribute to Relix magazine – that long-running publication that first began as a tribute to The Grateful Dead, but which went onto encompass a host of different styles, and help provide some inspiration for the jamband generation as well! The book's got the dimensions of the magazine, and presents loads and loads of vintage pages in full color – almost as if you're getting a giant-sized volume of the magazine, assembled from all the best articles over the years! There's way more here than just the Dead – interviews with and articles on Robert Crumb, John Lennon, Jefferson Starship, Merl Saunders, Willie Dixon, and many others – plus even-cooler topical articles on things like 70s disco, taping live performances, parental approval of the Grateful Dead, and many other groovy topics. Very nicely done, vividly illustrated, full color, and 244 pages! Book
