Gauch_Cover_FramedThe Graphic Art of the Underground: A Countercultural History (Bloomsbury/ 2014)

The Graphic Art of the Underground: A Countercultural History takes the reader on a dazzling journey through the visual art and design of alternative and youth cultures from the 1950s to the present day.
Here’s what artist Savage Pencil has to say about it: “The authors/editors have tunnelled deep into counterculture’s underground warren to reveal a hidden world decorated with drug-induced graphic visions, rebellious poster art, anti-comics, code comix and freak show fine art – and unlock a box full of very dangerous looking toys. Their passionately compiled illustrated history of underground art, in all of its many beautifully warped guises, will further thrill those who are already enraptured by its uncanny charms, and amaze those who were previously unaware of its existence.”
Hardback: 272 pages and illustrated with over 200 images.
