‘Pin-Ups 1972-82: Ten Years Of Classic Posters From The Punk, New Wave And Glam Era’ will be issued in soft back coffee table format by Extradition Publishing. From Glam through Punk to New Wave and Post-Punk, this collection of over 200 posters from the 1970s onwards celebrate a decade's music and design. Drawing on scores of personal interviews with stars, artists, photographers and fly-posting mafiosi, Alwyn Turner and Roger Crimlis tell the stories behind the pictures from a golden age of rock & roll.
These are the images that adorned our bedroom walls: they asserted our allegiances, fuelled our fantasies, and let our friends know where we stood in the grand scheme of rock & roll. We still remember them this way: with yellowing strips of Sellotape stuck diagonally across the corners, with the faint aroma of illicit cigarette smoke clinging to them, with the wear, tear and graffiti that accumulated over the years.
This re-issue of ‘Pin-Ups 1972-82: Ten Years Of Classic Posters From The Punk, New Wave And Glam Era’ is bolstered with dozens of new images and new insights from those who were there. Critically acclaimed when first published, State Of The Art hailed, “The definitive review of the decade's music graphics'; whilst Mojo praised the collection as “A winning rumination on a golden period of pop”.
With posters featuring iconic images of timeless artists like Bowie, Blondie, Ramones, The Damned, Adam Ant, Motörhead, Suicide, Iggy Pop, Tom Robinson Band and Lou Reed, ‘Pin-Ups 1972-82: Ten Years Of Classic Posters From The Punk, New Wave And Glam Era’ is a true time capsule.
Quite simply: this book is for anyone who has ever blu-tacked a poster to their bedroom wall.
