This weeks It’s Not Us posts come from the seemingly unstoppable Jason Munn, also known as The Small Stakes. If you’ve been living in a hole for the past couple of years, you won’t know Jason to be one of the brightest, most consistent voices in American poster design – his work a triumph of poise, wit and subtlety.
‘These are two recent posters both using metallic silver and black â€“ I love this color combination. The first is a poster to promote the release of LCD Soundsystem’s Sound of Silver. This is a limited edition screen printed poster sent out by the label to independent record shops. The second is a screen printed poster for a recent show by The Books in San Francisco.’
