Punk Style book released

punk style

I’m thrilled to announce that my book, Punk Style, is now out in the States. It has been out globally since November. It is on Bloomsbury.

This has been a labor of love that I’ve worked on formally since 2007.

It includes research from my dissertation, from my masters and doctoral classes, and lots of additional research from interviews and travel to collections/places of historical note. The book covers history and style development, motivations, marketing/merchandising, current culture, and ideas for the future of punk style.

Hope you enjoy it! I’ll periodically post some interviews and other things I do to get the info form the book out there.

If you’d like to discuss please get in touch.

    This sounds amazing – I’ve been waiting for someone to cover this topic! Of course I’m very interested in the fashion but I’m particularly intrigued by the beauty aspect of punk style (hair, makeup, nail polish, etc.) and it sounds like you touch on this a little in the book.
    Off to order!

    Thank you. I do get into hair and make up quite a bit. Talking about dreadlocks and dying and I interviewed Snooky from Manic Panic and they provided wonderful images. I hope you enjoy it.
