One of the ‘90s most iconic rave flyer designers is celebrated in a new book.

The latest project from publishing house Velocity Press will provide a comprehensive insight into the back catalogue of London-born artist Junior Tomlin, whos space-inspired, futuristic artwork was used by promoters nationwide throughout the golden era of UK rave.

Going back to 1989, the book will feature work from the beginnings of his career, when he worked with promoters like Telepathy, Dreamscape, Slammin’ Vinyl, One Nation, Dream Odyssey and Ravealation, plus a wide variety of influential labels, such as Kickin’ Records, React, ZTT and Mute.

Junior Tomlin: Flyer & Cover Art is available to purchase here for £20.

Last year, a new book exploring the roots, origins and development of bleep techno was released by Velocity Press. 

Check out DJ Mag’s feature on modern rave art from February this year, where we spoke to 12 artists keeping the art form vital in 2020.
