Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

T-shirts have become an essential fashion statement--a form of self-definition for both the average person and those in cutting-edge subcultures. This fascinating compilation takes you on a visual journey through the most popular, style-setting rock-based tees from the 1970s and '80s. Featuring such iconic bands as AC/DC, the Beastie Boys, Bon Jovi, Public Enemy, the Ramones, the Stones, and the Sex Pistols, it showcases a range of designs from this timeless era of pop culture and puts you inside the collections of T-shirt fans and fanatics, with wonderful backstories and gorgeous spreads.
