2016: Best of Books on Magazines

Six Books on Magazines

  1. Showboat Punk/Sex/Bodies
  2. Provoke: Between Protest and Performance  1
  3. Graham MacIndoe’s All The Young Punks

  4. Yes Yes Yes Alternative Press 1966-1977, From Provo To Punk  
  5. Oh So Pretty: Punk in Print 1976-1980 Paperback by Toby Mott

This was the year to re-package punk, alternative and protest periodicals of the time, and by release schedule and collecting preference mostly music focused.  Standout amongst the lot was the Dashwood published Showboat (the special edition came with an amazing set of four colour two sided posters), the printing and stock is exceptional.
