FELT

“Telling the story of Felt, the ultimate eighties cult band, through an exquisitely produced and limited edition book of photography feels perfectly apt.”   The Stool Pigeon

“When music fans are empowered to choose which books they want to see published, they can make bold moves no mainstream publisher would have dared…Lawrence’s attention to visual detail was painstaking to say the least (a rumour persists that he sacked a drummer for having curly hair), which makes Felt ideal candidates for this kind of sumptuous treatment.  You could argue the music industry might learn something from this approach. These books feel different: they are nostalgic one-offs, initiated by fans. Looking at the results, I’m glad somebody found a way to make them happen.” The Guardian

 

PUNK+

 

“Punk+ is a photo book with a difference” Clash

“Striking and fascinating” Mojo

“Legendary punk photographer Sheila Rock has pulled all her best shots … featuring anecdotes and unique insights into a dawning movement…” NME

“But for American Sheila Rock, who knew those guys (Richard Hell and the New York Dolls) first and then moved to London, “that anarchic showing off, that dandy thing, the street style, it’s very British. American is famous for the Gap. Britain is famous for punk”. (Extract from feature article Pretty in Punk: How the Street Stormed the Catwalk)” Vogue

“This book is a great photographic record of a major shift in British street fashion.” Paul Simonon (The Clash)

 

GENESIS BREYER P-ORRIDGE

“Genesis P-Orridge is in no way similar to 99% of the earth’s population.” Crack

“The life of a androgynous art/noise legend” Dazed & Confused

“Industrial pioneer, gender-erasing pandrogyne, gleeful wrecker of civilisation” FACT

“Provocative pictorial features…of a life less ordinary than most…are captured here in their iconic glory” Record Collector
