Put together by independent Tokyo-based design company and publisher mo’design, a new limited edition book tells the visual history of the United Kingdom’s punk culture from 1971-1984. Laconically titled untitled, the book’s minimal presentation case houses nine volumes at a total of 1,468 pages, featuring 800 original pieces of streetwear, putting its outward-facing aesthetic firmly at odds with the comprehensive overview of the 13 years of English fashion history found inside. The publication of untitled coincides with an equally wide-ranging exhibition at Shibuya’s The Mass art gallery. Taking those same years as its subject matter, “71-84” is a treasure trove of punk material with Sex Pistols memorabilia and never before seen photographs by Toru Kogure.

On a limited run of only 1,500, you can pick up a copy of untitled directly from mo’design for $307 USD while stocks last.
