Punk: An Aesthetic

Punk: An Aesthetic draws from private and public archives of rare material around the world to create an illustrated collection of punk art and ephemera. Ranging from posters for punk-rock bands, publications, and films, this collection documents the art of the punk movement and the ways it revolutionized design.

Punk: An Aesthetic was published by Rizzoli New York in September 2012. It was edited by Johan Kugelberg and features essays by Jon Savage, William Gibson, and Linda Sterling.
