These were all selected by Bob Newman and posted on his Facebook page Robert Newman Design. In the spirit of brotherhood and internet sharing I'n reposting them all here. Ain't that very twenty-first century of me? Art Chantry has an amazing and amazingly influential body of work. If I started naming his acolytes I might be typing well into the twenty-second century.

Amazon: Some People Can't Surf: The Graphic Design of Art Chantry: Art Chantry's contrarian ways have placed him in the pantheon of great modern designers. Some People Can't Surf: The Graphic Design of Art Chantry is the first survey of this visual iconoclast, who also designed the book and packed it with hundreds of his vibrant images. Gritty, funny, and refreshingly low-tech, his award-winning work has promoted countless bands, social causes, and non-profits. Tracing Chantry's career from his covers and layouts for the seminal music magazine The Rocket, to album covers for such cult bands as Mudhoney, the Reverend Horton Heat, and the Fastbacks, Some People Can't Surf is a comprehensive look at his creative evolution. Complete with commentary on the unusual origins and unorthodox processes behind his work, as well as providing context for his oft-copied look, Some People Can't Surf is a much-anticipated exploration of this idiosyncratic design master.
