British Invasion 1.0Mus_BritishInvasion_Red_12x12 $44
Rock and roll exploded in popularity across North America in the early 60s. At the same, British bands were drawing inspiration from American bands and began developing their own sounds and fan bases. By the mid-1960s, bands like the Rolling Stones, Beatles, and Kinks all had hits playing on top-40 radio across North America. Soon they were boarding flights and the British Invasion 1.0 was on.
The inspiration behind our 'British Invasion 1.0' Art print
I grew up the youngest of four kids in a family of music lovers. British and North American rock was in constant rotation on our turntable at home. I was too young to remember the Beatles and Stones' first tours, but not too young to appreciate their music. As an artistic kid, I loved album art and band posters also. Record label and tour promotion graphic artists were incredibly skilled with typography.
This piece speaks to my love of the 1960s music poster genre and typography. It's a great addition to any music fan's art collection.
