"As curators everywhere scrabble for tatty flyers and ’zines that most punks’ mums chucked years ago, a new book comes stomping like Godzilla into the busy new world of punk studies. It’s a big one, complete with its own exhibition..." ~Prospect UK
"...a beautiful, excellently curated book of punk photographs, zines, posters, album covers, and ephemera...It costs $55 and is too large to easily shoplift. It is not a book for punks." ~Newinquiry.com
"With more than three hundred images and accompanying essays...this definitive visual narrative illustrates how the DIY ethic of the punk era inspired a movement in graphic arts and design whose influence is still felt among the most significant figures in the fields today." ~Forcesofgeek.com
"When it came to punk music, hard and fast ruled; technique, not so much. How that sound translated to images is the subject of Punk: An Aesthetic" ~San Antonio Express-News
"...contains an incredible collection of punk art and ephemera from all over the world." ~Complex.com

Along with "The Best of Punk Magazine" are the two best books available about Punk.An amazing book about an era with a true spirit, something impossible to find in the present times.
Sometimes its good to be `against'.
To stand in opposition.
Someone needs to protect the awkward and rejected.
Someone needs to be a defender of possibility.
Punk is something to DO with your anger.
It's the direct life. Just living it.
Putting forward a belief, even if its a belief in nothing.
--Samara Golden on "Punk: An Aesthetic"

Therefore, it passes as a book about PUNK. I don't know anything about it.
