Blues Flashbacks

Looking Back at the Music that Gave Us Rock and Roll

Blues Flashbacks is an ebook that transports you back to the 1980's and early 1990's when some legendary blues artists were on the cusp on stardom, others at high points of their careers, and still others in their twilight. The book is filled with interviews, memorabilia, stories, and photography—all that encapsulates an unforgettable era of blues.

Stylizing an Era

We used huge textures, stylized photography, blues-record-inspired compositions and type throughout the book to bring it to life. We didn't want to only mimic what was happening at the time graphically, but instead present the book in a modern form while paying homage to the past. The final book is a powerhouse of visuals that feel just like the intensity of the music.
