    “Color x Color: The Sperry Poster Archive” illustrates the 40 year career arc of renowned rock poster artist and master screen printer, Chuck Sperry. The 750+ page tome features over 800 color reproductions of Sperry’s work, from his early years creating posters for Bill Graham’s legendary Fillmore Auditorium, to his eye-arresting work for The Who, Eric Clapton, Pearl Jam, and the Black Keys.
    “Helikon, The Muses of Chuck Sperry” gathers together Sperry’s masterfully screen printed wood panel series of contemporary-classical muses: work inspired by the spirit of the modern rock poster, graffiti, and the utopian ethos of 1960’s psychedelia.
    “Chthoneon, The Art of Chuck Sperry” delves boldly into Sperry’s artistic imagination, inspiration and reasoning, continuing where it’s companion book “Helikon, The Muses of Chuck Sperry” left off. “Chthoneon” collects 22 gorgeously photographed new Sperry screen printed art works paired with the prose or poem — from Aristophanes to Margaret Atwood — that inspired each.

    See why Chuck Sperry’s work has built a devout following of private collectors including some you might know. Sperry's books are available at the link below.


    “His talent in the art of poster design is of the highest order, making him one of the best in his field.” - Roger Daltrey, The Who

    “We are honored to have the work of Chuck Sperry representing our sound in your eyes.” - Dave Schools, Widespread Panic

    “Chuck is one of our very favorite poster designers.”
    - Patrick Carney, The Black Keys

    “I’ve always loved Chuck’s unique style: imaginative textures, colors and hypnotic backgrounds which give the flat stock radical dimension.”
    - Jeff Ament, Pearl Jam

    “Chuck Sperry not only joins a tradition that extends from the likes of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and Alphonse Mucha through the golden age of Sixties psychedelic rock posters, the rise of street art multiples and beyond, he proposes a kind of art that is affordable and available. A master at silkscreen and graphic design, a prolific purveyor of pictorial provocations, and a soulful trickster of impeccable integrity, Chuck Sperry is quite simply a fine artist who has chosen to make work for the masses.”  - Carlo McCormick, art critic: Vice, Artforum, Art In America

    “Chuck Sperry's new book 'Color x Color' archives 40 years of his striking art” - KQED
