Loud Flash: British Punk on Paper

More than any movement before or since, punk was defined by the poster. Excluded from TV and daytime radio, struggling to be heard in the mainstream press, posters provided an effective – and virtually free – means for bands to reach the public. This collection, which also incorporates fanzines, flyers and other ephemera, delivers a gripping snapshot of the Britain of that time, a country rife with divisions which was slowly awakening to the reality of its reduced status in the post-war world.

Text: Mott Toby, Ford Simon et al. cm 21×25; pp. 128; 118 COL; paperback. Publisher: Haunch of Venison, London , 2010.
