Beyond Heaven: Chicago House Party Flyers from 1983 - 1989
This new book captures the spirit and energy of the emerging Chicago House scene through its ephemera. These flyers, or 'pluggers' were promotional devices which were found in local record shops or passed around at schools and on the streets.
There is an amazing cut n paste, hand drawn DIY feel about these ephemeral flyers, which not only document the DJs of this vibrant scene, but also the record shops, labels, promoters and dance groups involved.
From the collection of Mario 'Liv It Up' Luna, a DJ living in Chicago at the time, this new book is ESSENTIAL for anyone into the Chicago house scene, collectors of ephemera or brilliant homemade graphics.
