Peace Love and Brown Rice

I love it when good design and great content comes together to produce an amazing book. I recently got my hands on Peace Love and Brown Rice: A Photographic History of the Big Day Out. As the name suggests, it documents the Big Day Out music festival from the first one in 1992 (with Nirvana and The Violent Femmes on the setlist) right up to 2005.

The photos in this book are all by Sophie Howarth, and I love how she didn't just take photos of the bands but the whole festival vibe. A lot of the photos of the wacky festival punters are more interesting than the band shots! The pages are so thoughtfully designed to perfectly capture the gritty, grungy and chaotic nature of the BDO festival.

A beautiful book. Love, love, love it.
