Most Wanted & Collected Posters of 2018, & Database Trends

Posterogs is our newest, but fast growing database with over 500% growth in 2018. Turns out people who are into physical music formats are also pretty keen on gig posters.

Thank you to everyone who has contributed or made edits to Posterogs. We appreciate you making 2018 a great year for the Bookogs database.

What’s new on Posterogs this year:

  • The improved submission form makes adding a book to the database a breeze, as well as autosave in case you accidentally click out or close the window
  • You can add setlists to Posterogs now! Link songs from the setlist from Discogs
  • Add a YouTube clip to a page – especially for concert and gig posters – adding a clip from the show completes the experience
  • Filtering and sorting on browse pages to narrow down the database on your interests
  • Better searching – get more info in the search bar dropdown, including images, so you click through to the right item
  • More granular settings so you have more choice over how you interact with Bookogs
  • More artists linked between the Discogs and Posterogs databases

Most Cataloged Subjects/Artists in Posterogs

Clearly Daft Punk are a firm favorite of the Posterogs community, with 111 posters cataloged. This is also very clear from both the Most Collected and Most Wanted lists. Queens of the Stone Age frequently contributed posters are consistently unique and awesome, as are The War On Drugs’ and Foo Fighters’ posters. These are artistry, make sure you check them out.

Most Cataloged Poster Type

When we started thinking about Posterogs, we thought of it as a database primarily for gig posters, which would fit well with Discogs and collectors of physical music media. That said, we kept the definition quite broad, as we wanted it to be a truly community-driven project. In the year since we started, the community have shown a keen interest in including flyers, and also film posters in the mix. Since we also have Filmogs for film releases, we figured this also makes sense.

While gig posters are still the most cataloged type of poster on Posterogs, film posters come in second, ahead of album promo posters and tour posters.

Screen print is the most contributed poster printing technique, but this is a little hard to tell as it’s not a required field in the Posterogs submission form. Anecdotally, it does seem like screen print is a popular style for gig posters, and rightly so. The things these artists manage to achieve with their craft is something else.

Comparing Most Collected and Most Wanted of 2018 to Mid-Year

Daft Punk does it again. At the mid-year point, they dominated the Most Collected list with half of the top 10 being Daft Punk posters. Now they’re closing out the year with 6 out of 10. Kiss‘s 1976 US tour poster makes a surprise entrance into the Most Collected and Most Wanted lists, and Cocteau Twins hold their position as Most Wanted to finish 2018 on top.

    Was so happy to hear about Posterogs from one of my collecting friends. I immediately started adding Daft Punk posters to the site. Us Daft Punk fans are a dedicated bunch.
