During the research I did for exploring type and language, I began to research the Punk Era and the artisits that had a big imact on it. I also looked at the instant art during this period, such as posters and flyers. During 1977 and 1985, a collection of frenetic flyers and posters were created for the Punk scene, especially in America. Many were created by the musicians themselves and demonstrate the emphasis within the punk scene on individuality and the manic urge of its members to create things new. Images were compiled out of whatever material could be found, often photocopied and stapled to the nearest telephone pole to warn the world about next week’s gig.
