A very nice big art book by Michael Fishel. It is well worth buying and keeping. A British version of the Art of Rock.

I have just received a copy of The Art of Big ‘O’ Produced by Michael Fishel It is a very colourful and densely illustrated book with a focus on the artists who produced posters for the company including mine. Peter Ledeboer worked as art director for Oz a visually stunning underground magazine transported from Australia. Peter founded Big ‘O’ with posters by such artists as Martin Sharp who was famous for album covers such as Cream’s Wheels of Fire and Disraeli Gears and who was key to the image of Oz. Big ‘O’ played a very important role in my career in that they both published my posters and distributed my first book “Views” both of which sold huge numbers. It was great working with Peter and Big ‘O’ and it’s very good to see this book out. Michael needs congratulating for doing it and for prizing first the images and then a forward out of me. - Roger Dean
