Everyone recognises the iconic photo from the cover of the Ramones' self-titled album of 1976. But how many have seen the image, taken with the same roll of film, of Dee Dee excitedly chasing his bandmates out of shot with a stick? This compilation of stunning images from punk and new wave's most iconic albums uncovers these lost photographs, along with the stories behind them.
With hundreds of photographs, accompanied by anecdotes, interviews and first-hand accounts from the photographers themselves, this book gives access to rare behind-the-scenes stories about how shoots took place and the creative processes behind them.
Whether you are a dedicated new wave fan or are simply drawn to punk fashion, this book is a real treasure.
