Book edited by Terry Jones, future founder of the iconic ID magazine, this book is one of the first books on the subject of Punk. Its quality is mainly due to the photographs taken in the street and the description of a new fashion specific to this musical movement. In its deliberately provocative layout, Not Another Punk Book looks more like a fanzine than a classic book. The message is quickly announced: “Punk is an attitude. An attitude of threat. It is a threatening look which says that the status quo is something that can be changed”. Book of very high aesthetic quality and a real iconographic richness.
