We are big fans of Herb Lester Associates maps and if you are too, you might want to add the latest to your collection – Punk London.

The subject matter is pretty self-explanatory. Produced in association with cultural commentator Paul Gorman (the man responsible for the wonderful England’s Dreaming), this is a guide to the London locations made famous by the punk explosion of 40 years ago.

In total, there are 111 locations featured across the city: Malcolm McLaren and Vivienne Westwood’s shop at 430 Kings Road; the Hampstead flat shared by Johnny Rotten and Sid Vicious; Saint Martin’s School Of Art, where the Sex Pistols made their debut performance; Pathway Studios in Canonbury, where The Damned recorded New Rose (the first UK punk release); The Clash’s Camden Town rehearsal space and many more – everything from the squats to the shops.

If you want a nostalgic tour of London four decades ago, this is the map for you. Designed by Mike Haddad, it is A6 (148x210mm), with 28 pages in total. The map is Litho-printed in England on recycled paper and is available to pre-order now for just £6.
