PHAIDON

OH SO PRETTY: PUNK IN PRINT 1976-1980

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 artifacts - 'zines,' gig posters, flyers, and badges - from well-known and obscure musical acts, designers, venues, and related political groups. 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.

Printed and bounded in China. Produced by editorial team in London and New York Headquarters.
