Beautiful, high-quality images of punk rock flyers make up the bulk of this large paperback. Hardcover would have been better. The heavy, glossy pages are already pulling apart the spine after my first read. Mostly from a West Coast point of view, bands like Dead Kennedys, The Avengers, Black Flag get their own well-deserved pages with remembrances from band members, scenesters like Brendan Mullen, etc. The final quarter or so is other scenes: Boston, The Midwest, Canada, etc.
This book has so much variety when it comes to showing artisty & emotion from the punk rock movement. It features advertisments, typography, and exposes on bands like the Dead Kennedys and NOFX! Visual read with plenty of great information on all things true punk.
