Oh So Pretty: Punk in Print 1976-1980 Description

A compelling visual portrait of a time, place, and subculture that raised a middle finger to modern society Oh So Pretty: Punk in Print 1976-80 is an unrivalled collection of visually striking ephemera from Britain's punk subculture. It presents 500 artefacts - 'zines,' gig posters, flyers, and badges - from well-known and obscure musical acts, designers, venues, and related political groups. While punk was first and foremost a music phenomenon, it reflected a DIY spirit and instantly recognizable aesthetic that was as raw and strident and irrepressible as the music. As disposable as the items in this book once were, together they tell a story about music, history, class, and art, and document a seismic shift in society and visual culture.

OH SO PRETTY : PUNK
This is a great collection of Punk D.I.Y. art from the late 70s. Over 500 pages and printed on paper that is sympathetic to the originals. All the classic promo and live gig flyers and posters from the early punk bands, plus Zines like Sniffing Glue. Love it :-)
