Description

Russ Bestley/Alex Ogg: The Art Of Punk is the first ever comprehensive review of punk graphics celebrates a wide range of punk posters, flyers, album cover art, fanzines and fashion ephemera.

Famous graphics for legendary bands like the Ramones, The Sex Pistols, The Damned and The Clash are included, along with less well-known examples from around the world, as punk designs from South America, behind the old "Iron Curtain" and from even further afield are also featured.

This ground-breaking collection includes no fewer than 900 illustrations from famous names, including Malcolm Garrett, Linder Sterling, Peter Saville, Barney Bubbles, Raymond Pettibon, Barry Jones, Jill Mumford, Winston Smith, Paul Henry and Chris Morton, as well as many anonymous and uncredited designs. Also featured are previously unpublished images by Arturo Vega (Ramones), Peter Gravelle (Sex Pistols/Damned) and Jamie Reid (Sex Pistols).

Punk was never about creating art and yet the exuberant visuals that accompanied it often turned out to be art anyway. Here then is the definitive collection of punk's wild, varied and exuberant graphic identity.
