First edition of 500 copies. Printed, sewn card wraps with printed dust jacket, 22.9 by 30.2 cm, [126] pp., black and white and color illus. Very good with faint corner wear; the jacket, which is attached at the spine (as issued), has some tiny edge tears, a few scratches/dents on the front panel, and a sticker ghost on the rear panel. Published to coincide with an exhibition and panel discussion at The NY Art Book Fair, this amazing volume features 100 full-page reproductions of British punk zine covers from the Toby Mott collection, including Ripped & Torn, Penetration, London’s Burning, Sniffin’ Glue, Nuggets, White Stuff, Vox Populi, In The City, Jungleland, Suburban Revolt, Grinding Halt, Skins, Guilty of What, Diatribe, and many more. A truly unique collection of street-level art and graphic design. Includes the essays “Glue Was All Over My Fingers” by Toby Mott and “We Are the Writing on the Wall” by Vic Brand: “The zine is mass-produced graffiti, a love letter to an anonymous public, a black-and-white shout into the wilderness. As a product, it goes hand-in-hand so perfectly with the autochthonous priorities of the punk movement that it seems in retrospect almost inevitable. The youth of the United Kingdom—under- and unemployed, adrift and disillusioned in the aftermath of ‘60s utopianism—were the writing on the wall in the mid-1970s. The kids of punk weren’t all right: Punk was the return of the repressed. Even if they were only talking to a few, they could express themselves without censorship through music and grainy, handwritten pamphlets.” Mott, who was a punk during the same period this volume covers,1 is a British artist, designer, and punk historian.
