Punk is the definitive visual history of the explosion of a rock culture form, the impact of which reverberates all more strongly now in the 1990s. Using photographs, original artwork, and text, Adrian Boot and Chris Salewicz, the team that created the highly successful Bob Marley: Songs of Freedom and Jimi Hendrix: The Ultimate Experience, have created a stunningly graphic book that provides unique insight into this crucial phenomenon.
Punk traces both British and American punk styles, their sociopolitical and musical roots, evolution, cross-fertilization, and their legacies. Other topics include The Sex Pistols, the CLash, Pattis Smith, Green Day and Offspring. Incorporating more than 200 photographs, many never previously published, and a unique design, Punk is essential reading for all rock music lovers.
