that's really cool. you posted the verbatum description of what clay defines as a gigposter. so, i guess the book is a gigposter.

so, i guess i can start newspaper and zine ads and tour shirts and shit like that.

thanks for clarifying that for me.

  rules suck, but i've been slammed on this site many times by people insisting on rules that i ignored. so, just what are these rules. understand?

if we're gonna have rules, i wanna know what they are.

ok, you misunderstand me. i'm nor asking for this item's removal (although i would not get upset if it was). i'm simply trying to figure out what is going on. this item is a direct challenge to the working definition of a gigposter here on this sight.

maybe my observations point toward a rather arbitrary and contradictory standard on this sight. frankly (and i've said this many times before) i really don't think most of the posters on this sight honestly qualify as a gigiposter in that they don't really advertise anything, but are souvenirs. for me, that's a huge proble. now, an item like this was apparently actually used for advertising, but isn't a poster that was hung on a wall (or was ever intended that way). but, then i'll bet many of the posters done on this sight have never seen a day oadvetising an event hanging anywhere ever.

so, to further clarify the problems i see with this item - if this is ok to post on site about gigposters, then tour tshirts and frisbees and funny hats and ballpoint pens or anything else that has the proper date/place/band should be acceptable. right?

i got a lot of stuff i could post here if such were the case. maybe even a couple of book jackets...

  note: there is a typo i made in my comment. the last sentenc eof the first paragrah should say that it DOES NOT legitimize it as a poster. it makes a BIG diference.

i wish i could make a correction after the fact on comments.

your response to the question seems confused. you defend it and reject it as both a both and a non-poster at the same time. you seem to have mixed feelings as well. a few points: nobody is saying thatit is NOT appropriate for the band or isn't a great design or isn't extremely clever or anything of that sort. however, i do insist that merely having an advertising function legitimizes it as a poster (like you seem to suggest).

i think maybe you don't have a working definition of what is a poster. it's all just promo advertising novelty (aka design culture "good taste") passing for ideas.

i dunno. personally i think this piece (at least for me) goes over the line and is NOT a poster. my tshirt poster did the same. the realities of what is a "poster" is gone and the world of "frisbee" has been entered.

just a few thoughts. keep in mind i've struggled with just these problems for over 30 years and i guess this is where it comes down for me.

so,i guess it should be removed from gigposters (in my opinion), or else we need to start allowing tshirts on the sight (so long as they have datye/place/band).

clay -

in response to your note to me - i have no idea what you are talking about. but then, i seldom do. if you want a response, i'd say take a close look at this item we are discussing and tell us all why you think it should stay or it should go (why it is a gigposter or not a gigposter). keep in mind that whatever you decide will be aplied across the board by readers. then i want you to consider some tshirts i did that i claim are actually posters....
