About this item

Too Fast to Live, Too Young to Die is the definitive visual record of punk and post-punk graphic design; its seven hundred-odd pages are packed with more than 1,500 compelling images of the era. Readers will see much more than Xeroxed proclamations and ransom-style layouts: designers embraced diverse influences, dynamic images, and typographies with gusto and humor, and elements of Futurism, German Expressionism, Soviet-era posters, Pop Art and the Bauhaus movement are reflected in these pieces. The images in this book, sourced exclusively from the editor’s collection, are introduced by renowned graphic design author and editor Steven Heller, and contextualized by an essay by British rock journalist Peter Silverton (Filthy English, I Was a Teenage Sex Pistol).
