Soul Jazz Records’ massive deluxe 400-page Punk 45s cover art book edited and compiled by Jon Savage (author of the seminal book on punk, England’s Dreaming) and Stuart Baker (founder of Soul Jazz Records). 

The book includes introduction and text by Jon Savage, numerous interviews, features and articles from the likes of Richard Hell, Seymour Stein (Sire Records), Geoff Travis (Rough Trade), Peter Saville (Factory), Martin Mills (Beggars Banquet), Dave Robinson (Stiff Records), Richard H Kirk (Cabaret Voltaire), Martin Moscrop (A Certain Ratio) as well as exhaustive biographies, band line-ups and more to create an in-depth study of punk during its formative years.

This book features the original full-size singles cover art of hundreds of punk groups - everyone from the pre-punk roots of The Stooges, MC5 and New York Dolls on to punk's birth in New York (Ramones, Talking Heads, Voidoids, Dead Boys) and London (Pistols, Clash, Buzzcocks) and then  its rapid growth around the world. Included are hundreds and hundreds of rare, classic and stunning sleeves that collected together for the first time chart the rise of punk between the years 1976-1980.
