Thank you! Pure and perfect! This book is full of greatness.
Road.to sliver
the book is simply a series of photographs of t-s***s. I thought it would be more of a history or relevance of the T-shirts of the time. its cool but a bit flat
Lcena
Incredible book.

This is a really nice book, a collection of underground bootleg tees from the golden era, very good photos too!

If I could give this book a 12 star rating I would. I expected photos of underground shirts for inspiration, but this exceeded my expectations. There are photos of a lot of rare vintage tees that gives me a lot of ideas as a budding t-shirt designer. I have been looking back at it every week as I sketch new ideas, and the price is a steal. Even if you aren't into T-Shirt design, this is still a good book for graphic designers/illustrators to have on their table top. I was bothered at the first that the book had little blurbs, but eventually, I didn;t mind as I saw it allowed me to focus on what was important, the Tees.
