ECHO: A Survey at 25 Years of Sounds, Art and Ink on Paper
10" x 10" Hardcover
For the past 25 years, we at Higher Ground, in conjunction with the acclaimed design firm Solidarity of Unbridled Labour (formerly JDK Design), and the nonprofit community printmaking studio Iskra Print Collective have had a unique partnership. Together we have created a collection of hundreds of captivating silkscreen posters for specific shows at the venue, evoking the spirit of each band with bold creativity and providing concert goers the unique experience of a free commemorative poster at the end of a show.
This extraordinary collaboration is represented in Echo, a stunning, high-quality 280 page book filled with 367 remarkable poster designs, ephemera, and anecdotes.
Echo is a limited edition of 2,500.
“What coheres in these images is the work of the music and art communities intertwined and invested in each other ... Concert posters are as close as one can get to the solid evidence that we all crave—proof that what happens when we create is beyond the scope of the individual work.” — Jeff Tweedy
In conjunction with Echo's launch, for the first time ever we're releasing a limited number of these archived posters, previously never available for purchase. Follow along as we release posters weekly, available via digital auction. You can find more information here.
** All proceeds from sales of Echo and archive posters benefit Iskra Print Collective, a beloved partner and local non-profit that teaches printmaking.**
