FROM A BASEMENT IN SEATTLE is an extensive look into the creative process through which artist Brad Klausen generates imagery for rock posters for Pearl Jam, Built to Spill, Queens of the Stone Age, and others. Beginning chronologically with the first poster he made and ending with the most recent, this stunning book covers more than seventy-five different works. Sketches and detailed commentary of the story appear alongside the image of each finished poster, to give readers a rare look over the artist's shoulder to see the execution and concept of the individual designs.
"Brad's sensitivity to our planet and the corrupt ways in which it has been desecrated by those who have accepted greed into their hearts is a driving force behind his art and way of thinking... for nearly ten years, most every piece of art connected to our group had his stamp on it... he is certainly one of my favorite artists."
--Eddie Vedder, vocalist/guitarist, Pearl Jam
