Artist Peter Coffin began his work with the iconic designs of LA’s Colby Poster Printing Company in 2008. Over the years, he solicited artists and friends to contribute their dream concerts—invented lineups for impossible gigs—and combined them with the colorful poster backgrounds. This effort resulted in 2017’s Imaginary Concerts, a collaborative monograph depicting show posters curated from the lineups of more than 75 contributors. The result was a stirring celebration of music’s vast conceptual universe.Coffin’s roster of concert daydreamers includes Yoko Ono, Sasha Frere-Jones, Lydia Lunch, Quasimoto and many more. Featuring original typesetting by artist Adam Turnbull, Imaginary Concerts Volume 1 and 2transports the reader further into Coffin’s uncannily evocative, nostalgia-tinged and personally revealing realm of musical what-ifs.

Coffin does a masterful job of making graphic wit. It is not parody. It is not a simple joke. It is a kind of hipster graphic poetry that is as fun to read as to view. Since 2008 he’s printed with Colby ads for shows that never happened but somewhere in the imagination actually did. -Print

Imagine your dream concert line-up. Heroes you never got to see, bands from far away countries that never seem to tour, or just your absolute favourites you could watch time and time again -It's Nice That
