Sound and Vision by John Riordan and published by Ryland, Peters & Small from Cico Books. This retails for $19.95, Love music? Love illustration? Want to know more about some of the best musicians every to record, from Bowie and the Beastie Boys to The Smiths and St. Vincent?  Featuring 100 of the coolest artists from the last five decades, Sound and Vision reveals the influencers and tastemakers who have helped to shape the contemporary music scene. Award-winning illustrator and comic artist John Riordan profiles cult musicians from genres including punk, indie, alternative, hip-hop, and electronic music.

Enlightening, often amusing, and always stunning to look at, Sound and Vision is a unique blend of the aesthetic and the acoustic and is an essential addition to any music fan’s collection.

My Opinion: I am a music lover so I found this book to have a ton of information for each decade so since I grew up in the 90’s I was drawn to that decade and reading about Wu-Tang Clan Oasis, Beck, Nirvana and so much more.
