CLASSIC ISSUE PUNK #1 HAS BEEN REPRINTED AND AVAILABLE AT THE GALLERY.

Punk #1 - Lou Reed issue Punk Magazine

John Holmstrom is marking Punk Magazine’s  40th Anniversary with an exhibit at Howl! Happening in NYC featuring John’s classic work and work from contributing artists from Punk.

Also, they have actually reprinted the now classic hard-to-find first issue, or Punk #1 with the famous Lou Reed interview that started the whole thing. It is an excellent quality reprint, and only $5 so you should get a few.
