Visual Vitriol. The Street Art and Subcultures of the Punk Rock and Hardcore Generation by David A. Ensminger

visial vitreol

Ensminger is not interested in existing theories and analysis of the Punk Rock subculture, he wants to tell the story of Punk Rock by Punks.  The book explores ethnic, cultural and social groups that embraced punk and he gives examples of DIY designs, mainly flyers and fanzines, to illustrate his writings.  This book gives me a glimpse into the emotional investment of Punks without the, often erroneous, theoretical and analytical viewpoints of scholars.   I am also able to track the art and design practices through presented examples.
