British graphic designer Rick Banks has celebrated the country’s club culture by compiling more than 30 years worth of graphics from logos, posters, flyers, tickets and more. The resulting book — titled Clubbed – features some of the UK’s most iconic clubs, ranging from Fabric to The Haçienda, which was recently named as one of Britain’s top 10 historic sites.

Speaking to Dezeen, Banks explained that he decided to make the book based on how important dance music was to him: “It was one of the biggest reasons I got into graphic design. For years, I was always amazed no one had done a modern, visual book on clubbing.” To produce the book, Banks spent time looking at archives belonging to influential designers associated with the culture, including Peter Saville, as well as trawling through old music magazines and databases of flyers. Take a look through Clubbed above, with the book available now via the project’s Kickstarter page.

In other design news, husband and wife duo Ed and Deanna Templeton have released their new Contemporary Suburbium book.
