Poster News | Widespread Panic Book And Ween Collection

Jam titans Widespread Panic have recently announced the publication of a book called Poster Children: The Artwork of Widespread Panic that compiles images of over 400 show posters spanning their entire career. The 320-page book, which will be available at local independent record stores, contains poster art from the likes of EMEK, Marq Spusta, Chuck Sperry and Jeff Wood along with notes from band members John Bell and Dave Schools.

“These posters were another way for our fans to relive the show and commemorate a good time. In a way, they were like the gatefold record cover of the by-gone vinyl era – a visual interpretation for fans to look at while listening to our music," said Schools in a statement announcing the book.

In another poster-related note, we recently came upon an amazing blog post by former Ween drummer Claude Coleman in which he shares images of over 100 Ween concert posters spanning the band's 25 year career. We recommend viewing 'em via this gallery.
