A Screen-Printed History of Rock

While other kids were collecting comics, Cesar Padilla was hunting down ultrarare (and frequently fan-made) band T-shirts. In Ripped: T-Shirts From the Underground (Universe), he showcases more than 200 of his finest specimens.

While other kids were collecting comics, Cesar Padilla was hunting down ultrarare (and frequently fan-made) band T-shirts. In Ripped: T-Shirts From the Underground (Universe), he showcases more than 200 of his finest specimens—and, in the process, offers a pit-stained rock history from the punk era forward. Designs for Run-DMC, Joy Division, and Grace Jones are accompanied by commentary from fashion and music luminaries like Betsey Johnson and Thurston Moore (just in case you get tired of looking at the pictures).
