Oh So Pretty: Punk in Print 1976-1980 Paperback
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.
