DIE NOT HAT EIN ENDE: THE SWISS ART OF ROCK. Lurker Grand. Edition Patrick Frey, Zurich, 2015. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 500 pp. 33 x 22 cm. ISBN 9783905929775 In English.
This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: Album covers, concert posters, flyers, fanzines, comics and photographs by Swiss graphic designers, musicians and photographers from the past 50 years of rock and pop history make The Swiss Art of Rock a terrific graphic design document and resource. Lurker Grand's third and most recent book project in a trilogy published by Edition Patrick Frey, Die Not Hat Ein Ende (Need Comes To An End) is packed with images and interwoven with texts on both musical and graphic history. Here the focus is not so much on a musical era and its protagonists as on the visualization of the subcultures. In addition to visualizing the music, much space is devoted to the history of the music itself. Music journalist, collector, and curator Samuel Mumenthaler, co-author of this book, offers a detailed chronology of the development of rock music in Switzerland. Roland Fischbacher, Director of the Visual Communications Program at the Bern School for the Arts, and Robert Lzicar, Design researcher and designer, discuss the roots of Swiss rock graphics.
