Product Description:

Launched in 1976, Punk magazine announced an exploding youth movement, a new direction in America....

Review:

“This coffee-table book cherry-picks from the archive: a Patti Smith Q&A, a carton strip (with real photos) starring Lester Bangs, and a two-page centerfold of Debbie Harry, who’s billed as ‘Punk Playmate of the Month.’” (Rolling Stone, 4 Star Review)

The anthology is packed tighter than CBGB in the 70s on a Saturday night, with incredible interviews...art, comics, rants, killer photos, and behind-the-scenes commentary and backstory on each issue from Holmstrom. It’s not just the history of the magazine...it conjures up the spirit of an era. (Vanity Fair)

“If you’re a punk fan, I’d say this hardcover is pretty essential to your collection.” (USA Today's Pop Candy)

“While the thought of a hardcover, slick-papered, coffee-table book anthologizing the decidedly low-rent, ragtag Punk magazine might seem the antithesis of punk, even a curmudgeon like Johnny Rotten would have to spit a gob in appreciation of the nicely done result.” (Houston Press)

“The Best of Punk is a funny, visually-stimulating time capsule commemorating the first music periodical of its kind: A subversive, savvy, often-imitated street-intellectual art showcase for punk rock purveyors at the dawn of the Eighties.” (Examiner.com)

“Though it only existed from 1976-1980, Punk Magazine captured the zeitgeist of New York’s punk music scene as it emerged from a few ramshackle clubs (most notably CBGB’s and Max’s Kansas City) to the national and international stage.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))
