Description - Hot And Cold by Richard Hell

Hot and Cold- The Works of Richard Hell is a stupendous compendium of poetry, prose, photography, illustrations, interviews, essays, lyrics, and more by acclaimed artist, author, and rock star, Richard Hell. Since he first came to public attention in the 1970s, Richard Hell has made a spectacular if specialized 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 anthems Love Comes in Spurts and (I Belong to the) Blank Generation.
