Every Widespread Panic fan would love the chance to dig through the bands poster archive, and with Poster Children, they get the chance. Over 400 posters spanning their entire career are included in this 320 page hardcover book, including notes from Dave Schools and John Bell and from the poster artists, including EMEK, Marq Spusta, Chuck Sperry and Jeff Wood.

Bassist Dave Schools on Poster Children: “These posters were another way for our fans to relive the show and commemorate a good time. In a way, they were like the gatefold record cover of the by-gone vinyl era – a visual interpretation for fans to look at while listening to our music.”

Poster Children is slated for a Black Friday release on November 29th. Pre-order requests will be filled first-come, first-served, while supplies last. This is a limited edition book and only one run of books will be printed.  Order the book here
