Whether designing graphics for Patagonia tees or an album cover, artist Jason Munn keeps it consistently simple with images evoking the spirit of the message while maintaining their own distinct charm. His new limited edition book "The Small Stakes" (named for his studio) shows off his skills as a thoughtful and conceptual poster designer, including over 150 of his works.

Included in the SFMoMA collection (where his book sold out in an hour at the recent signing), the Oakland-based illustrator has admirers the world over, creating works for magazines from ReadyMade to Wired and enlisted by almost every in-demand band to personify their album with one of his minimalist illustrations.

The book of mini music posters, printed on wood-free paper using a full six-color process, sells from San Francisco's Chronicle Books or online from The Small Stakes for $25.
