Think punk, a few things may spring to mind: mohicans, the Sex Pistols, sad looking teenagers hanging around Camden market.

Graphic design may not be one of them. But as a new book and upcoming exhibition at the Haywood Gallery show, the movement affected illustration, art and print just as much as sales of tartan trousers.

This overview of graphic design looks at how imagery during the 70s and 80s changed as a result of the punk movement.

And, fittingly, much of it celebrates the DIY aspect of art, with many homemade cassettes, posters and zines showing the rebellious side of design.
