Since 1984 artist and screen-printer Lindsey Kuhn has been creating posters for rock shows worldwide. Credited with helping revive the lost art of the “rock poster,” Kuhn keeps the D.I.Y. ethic alive by continuing to print and sell his own work as well as the works and merchandise of other artists through his print company, SWAMP.

“Lure of the SWAMP is Kuhn’s first book. Featuring 104 full-color pages with images of over 450 rock posters, “Lure of the SWAMP” chronicles 26 years of Lindsey’s printing history in images and text.  The book has contributions from Kozik, Pushead, Ron Donovan, Tim Kerr, Michelle “Hell” Carr, Eric “Emo” Hartman, Stainboy and many others.

Kuhn will make an appearance at La Luz to sign his book and will bring with him several of his rock posters; some new and some old, going back as far as the Jabberjaw days. In addition, Kuhn will bring several art prints, some originals and a few copies of the hardback version of “Lure of the SWAMP” along with a screen print laminated version of the book in a limited edition of 75 pieces. Other merchandise such as stickers and a toy or two will also be available.

“If there is one thing that makes America great, it’s a special type of self made pioneer, the true D.I.Y…The Trail blazer!  That unique person that grabs a hold of his world and his culture and molds it into energy and momentum.  There’s an old term for it, STOKED.  And Lindsey is a being, STOKED to the fullest!”- Frank Kozik
