Sheila Rock's second book collects many of her best photographs and documents the '70s London punk scene and its effect on fashion and street style. Includes commentary and interviews from several of the era's participants, including Paul Simonon, Don Letts, Jeanette Lee, Steven Severin, Steve Jones, Jon Savage, Jah Wobble, as well as the photographer.
Punk+ chronicles both designer and street styles between 1976-9 that had such an effect on fashion, society and politics, including Vivienne Westwood’s shop SEX as well as BOY, Robot and Acme Attractions. It is a fascinating insight into one of the most influential transformations of music and celebrates the scenesters who were the punk audience, and the designers that clothed the movement. As Paul Simonon (The Clash) comments: "This book is a great photographic record of a major shift in British street fashion."
