Instant Art of The Punk Rock Movement

Check out the link below to this great book on art from the N. American punk scene in the late 70's and 80's. The editors of this volume did an excellent job on all fronts: compiling the artwork, design/layout, and gathering contributors to add reflections on the scenes as they were. Portland even has its own section, along with cities all across the continent. Going through this book fires me up on the energy of those days, and the unique musical and artistic styles of each local scene.

Nice. In a way blogs are a modern version of fanzines. i still like it when people go through with an effort to document their scenes in printed form though.
