‘A Famous Night’ – A series of fictional gig posters

I was recently told about this great little project called A Famous Night and I thought I’d share it with you guys today. Based in Edinburgh and organized by Chris McAuley; the projects asks artist, illustrators and designers to create a gig poster commemorating a fictitious concert of their choosing. It’s a really fun idea and the project already has a number of great people involved. Above you can see posters by Jack Hudson, Christopher David Ryan and Tommy Perman. I particularly like the sound of Christopher David Ryan’s gig of Spirtualized, Broadcast and Boards of Canada.

With eight posters already produced you can check them all out on the A Famous Night website, there you’ll also find that posters are available to buy as prints. Each print is limited to an edition of 25 so that means you have to get in their quick if you want to pick one up! All details can be found here.
