Please View Our Extended Family of Punk Visual History Sites

This web page is but one unique site that folklorist David Ensminger maintains pertaining to the visual heritage and history of punk flyers, handbills, and posters. Please visit the links below to thousands of images from 30 years of the underground renegade ‘museum of the streets.’ I am currently planning sites on NYC, Florida, United Kingdom, and Europe during the next few months, in anticipation of my book Visual Vitriol, due out from the University of Mississippi on July 1st (Visual Vitriol: The Street Art and Subcultures of the Punk and Hardcore Generations) People interested in contributing to the websites, or keen on hosting a flyer event some place in his or her city during the summer 2011, feel free to contact me at leftofthedialmag@hotmail.com
