Skinhead: An Archive [Street Edition] by Toby Mott
Skinhead: An Archive, was a landmark publication and exhibition exploring one of the most controversial and radical subcultures. Designed by Jamie Andrew Reid and published by Ditto, with printed material curated by Toby Mott, the book examines this multi-faceted culture through the filter of printed material, zines, posters and films. Skinhead: An Archive is divided into sub-sections looking at the original iteration of skinhead, the fascist interpretation, the socialist counterpoint, queer skinhead culture, exploitation literature, skin girls, and everything in between.
Skinhead: An Archive features an exclusive font design, developed and adapted from a skinhead article in Penthouse magazine. Alongside a wealth of unseen visual material, the book will contain texts from writers with unique experience of the culture, including Bruce la Bruce and Garry Bushell.
An exhibition of this material was also held at The Newbridge Project, Newcastle upon Tyne in 2016.
