Punk: An Aesthetic (Rizzoli) is a brand new 350-page book that chronicles the crude, rude and impressionable visual ethos of the music and culture that changed rock ‘n’ roll forever. Loaded with tons of show flyers, fanzine covers, album artwork and original photography (some never before seen ’til now), the heavy-ass tome really brings home the powerful impact of the genre’s D.I.Y. principles. The impressive collection of anti-art is edited by Jon Savage – author of the acclaimed punk history, England’s Dreaming – and Johan Kugelberg – editor of the essential, Joe Conzo-featured early hip-hop history, Born in the Bronx . (Johan, by the way, also once wrote about White Castle for ego trip Magazine a long, long time ago.) Peep the images in the gallery for a taste (worth it for the “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Hate Parade” flyer alone).
