Summary: "The Graphic Art of the Underground: A Countercultural History showcases the visual art and design that has emanated from a series of iconoclastic, underground youth movements within Western pop culture since the 1950s, and which have challenged the perceived social and cultural complacency of the establishment.As such, it takes the reader on a colourful and provocative journey through the art of Californian custom car decoration (Kustom Kulture), psychedelia, underground comix and countercultural magazines, punk graphics, Lowbrow and Pop Surrealist art, designer vinyl toys and indie crafting. In doing so, it draws upon the work of an array of artistic figures - many of whose lives have proved as colourful as their work - such as Ed 'Big Daddy' Roth, Kenny 'Von Dutch' Howard (who gave his name posthumously to an internationally successful clothing brand), Robert Williams, Robert Crumb, Frank Kozik, Jamie Reid, Gee Vaucher, James Cauty, Barney Bubbles and Banksy, among numerous others"--
