Punk1

Fans of punk and indeed post punk will want to get a copy of Punk 45: The Singles Cover Art of Punk 1976-80 by Jon Savage and Stuart Baker, which is published by Soul Jazz Records nest month.

It is described as a 'revelatory guide' to hundreds of original 7-inch record cover sleeve designs of the era, an encyclopaedic visual reference guide that runs alongside a number of interviews with celebrated designers involved in creating that imagery, the calling cards of the era and the bands in question.

It covers 400 pages, which gives you an idea of just how exhaustive it is, with Amazon selling it on pre-order for £16.25.
