Elvis Jams, Dylan Tunes and Stones Songs as Pictogram Posters

ANIMAL favorite Viktor Hertz, maker of the pictogram movie posters has made some more pictogram posters. They’re awesome. The most recognizable songs of the most iconic music artists of if all time, or something like that, simmered nicely down to a cluster of minimalist symbols. A ‘Ring of Fire.’ Etc.

“This is my most ambitious, and maybe also the best, personal work I’ve done so far,” he writes. “Instead of just putting one single pictogram in each poster, like in my previous ‘Pictogram music posters’, I made as many as I could possibly come up with for each artist, and jammed them into one single poster. There is a total of 234 song pictograms in these posters.”

Here they come: David Bowie (uhh-uhh!), Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, Iggy Pop, The Beatles, Bruce Springsteen, Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley. “I’m aware of the absence of female artists in this list. I’m sorry about that, and I will try to make up for it in future projects.” C’mon, no Janis?
