The History of Rock for Big Fans and Little Punks


It’s not the first time we publish something about music here at BMACHINA Blog but today we definitely have something different here.

A friend of mine, Rita, recently published a book in called The History of Rock (for Big Fans and Little Punks), which is the first-ever complete and illustrated History of Rock music made into a children’s book. Pretty neat, hum?!

Don’t know about you but we love Rock music, we love kids and these days we think it’s very important they start to know how do we get here in music. So, we love the cause!

The book features the top artists and bands from every period of rock music history as well as from other genres and artistic movements that influenced rock music.

From Rock ‘n’ Roll pioneers of the 1950s to the 21st-century rockers, the book is divided into 35 chronological chapters.

The authors, Rita Nabais and Joana Raimundo, selected and illustrated the most important and influential rock bands and solo musicians since the 50s, including artists like Elvis Presley, David Bowie, Lou Reed, Björk, and bands such as Nirvana, U2, Talking Heads, Breeders, The Prodigy, Sonic Youth, Metallica, The Beach Boys, The Clash and many more.

In addition to legendary rock musicians and bands, the book also features and describes the artistic movements that influenced rock or were influenced by it, such as Blues, Jazz, Soul or Hip-Hop, highlighting the bands responsible for the most creative and groundbreaking fusions.

The “History of Rock for Big Fans and Little Punks” is a book meant to be read by kids and to unite families around music and literature.

By browsing the book together, while watching music videos and listening to the suggested songs, kids will enjoy the songs their parents love.

The book and the posters are also a fun collection of Joana’s illustrated portraits that have already received an enthusiastic thumbs up from legends such as Iggy Pop himself.


Definitely, a must have!

Yes, we are a small Design Studio based in Portugal. But more important than proud for being so well represented in a Eurovision Song Contest where the style of the music usually does not tell us anything to the BMACHINA team, #amarpelosdois represents everything that is done with heart and usually does not have a place in something like #eurovision. So, we as creators, we think that the flowers should go to all who gave birth to something so simple and beautiful and not so much to the language in which it was interpreted. Congratulations to Music, to arts and to everything that is made with love! Salvador and Luisa Sobral, you guys are beautiful! Thank you!

Hustlers Clean & Rough Font Display

Hey there!

It’s been awhile since the last Inspiration post, fortunately due to work duties. So i was thinking maybe it’s a good idea to start sharing something that was more “close” instead always sniffing for some inspiration here and there. With this thought in mind its just came to, why not starting share awesome stuff from the Markets that we are authors? There are amazing talents in Creative Market, Envato, etc.?!

So there you go, I will presented you Hustlers Clean & Rough from Decade Type Foundry!

Hustlers™ a display font inspired by carnival, circus and tattoo signs shop from the late 1800’s, It works well with normal size text, but it works even better for large displays, short words, or even just to incorporate a few or single characters in a design.

If you like this guy work you can check his Shop on Creative Market.

And there you have it 🙂
