Rare fashion book full of rich color photography of late 1970s punk wear from Vivienne Westwood and Malcolm McLaren, as collected by Punk Pistol, the punk fashion and memorabilia collector Simon Easton. The book is introduced by Malcolm McLaren; however, two years after the printing of this first edition, McLaren claimed the collection presented in this book is a forgery, effectively preventing future editions from being printed. Nevertheless, the book presents a striking collection of punk fashion, documenting either an astounding collection of punk high fashion or an impressive forgery.
