One of the more scarce skin photobooks, this volume contains “non-political” images of skinheads from Brighton to Barcelona, Glasgow to the Ardennes, Amsterdam to Australia. Great snapshots of skins hanging out, spending time with their kids, looking rough and ready, and lots with beer in hand. Double Shot mentions in the short intro that “two years after the idea was born, we can now proudly present this photobook,” so we can presume that most of the images contained in Oi! Are from the late 1980s and early... View more info

Edition: Limited ed

Seller ID: 2417

Condition: Very Good


Number 70 of 300 printed. Wraps, 17 by 23.8 cm, [86] pp. Very good with light cover wear and something blacked out (probably a price) near the bottom edge of the front cover. If there’s one thing we know about skins, they love photobooks. In some ways this volume is quite typical of these photobooks, which have been around since at least the early 1980s, with photos of bands, tattoos, skins in candid shots, and skinheads posing in their moonstomping best. What is unusual is that very little comes out of the Norwegian skinhead scene, and that speaks to the rarity of this book. My rough ... View more info
