Description - Hot and Cold by Richard Hell
The Collected Works of a Legendary Punk Prophet, Poet and Artist; Since he first came to public attention in the 1970s, Richard Hell has made a spectacular if specialised reputation for himself in every conceivable medium - from music, painting and photography, to fashion, design and writing. A man with a vision, Hell was the Prophet of Punk: the originator of the spiked haircut; ripped, drawn-on, safety-pinned clothes; and the seminal punk anthem, "I belong to the Blank Generation." Included in this book is the art, poetry and general works of the voice of punk, comprising less an anthology and more a seamless cohesion of the various mediums that ink on paper breeds.
