This two volume book gives a peek into early Dutch punk zines from 1977 - 1980, when Punk first hit The Netherlands. It is a rare collection curated by Matt Plezier focusing on the graphic output of the zines, from covers, ads, band pages, comics and collages. Most zines deteriorated overtime as most zines were stenciled, an inferior but readily available printing technique at that time.
The book is made in an edition of 25 and completely sold out in a matter of days. The book is in the library of the Centre Pompidou and was on view in Palais De Tokyo as part of the La Morsure Des Termites exhibition.
