Cabinet Of Curiosities – Club Flyers

The recent gale force winds and rain have restricted access to my outside studio space where I have been producing drawings with charcoal powder and water on paper.  I’m far too messy to work inside with the potential of the powder covering every surface. So the weather has brought about a juddering halt to working outside which left me scratching my head trying to think of what I could do indoors? Which brings us to club flyers. I have been meaning to do something with my club flyers which I’ve been collecting for 10+ years. There is no particular type of flyer that I collect it’s a case of whatever catches my eye and stands out from the usual dross covering the record shop counters when I’m indulging my vinyl addiction with a bit of crate digging. I have edited down my selection of flyers to 36 images to show the widest spectrum possible of the types of flyers I have been picking up, that is everything from; hand drawn, photocopies, graphic, photographic, digital to cut out shapes.

Where possible I have credited the designer if they are given a name check on the flyer. In the ideal world we could do a bit of crowd sourcing if anyone knows who the designers are please contact me so that I can give them a credit for their work.

  1. I’ll leave people to guess if I went to these clubs or not, actually I did go to some of the nights I have flyers for but none of them are featured in this blog because the design of the flyer wasn’t that amazing or worth featuring.
