The book came out at least two or three years ago, but "The Official Punk Rock Book of Lists" (which I fleetingly mentioned here) is well worth picking up, not just because it was co-compiled by Flaming Pablum favorite Handsome Dick Manitoba, but for the sheer volume of insightful trivia contained therein. Some time after it's publishing, its sibling book, "The Official Heavy Metal Book of Lists" hit store shelves. It too is also worth a read.
One of my favorite aspects of both of these books, however, is the illustrations by Cliff Mott. Mott's cartoonish caricatures echo a similar sensibility of favorite illustrators of mine like Danny Hellman, John Holmstrom and even a touch of Gerald Scarfe, yet still manage to completely capture the essence of the individuals depicted.
In any case, why am I bringing it up now? Well, because during a random recent Google image search (I was looking for a picture of X guitarist Billy Zoom for a reason that now escapes me), I happened upon a gallery website whereupon you can actually purchase Mott's original illustrations. The gallery show itself dates back to summer 2008, but it looks like the option to buy is still viable, should you be looking for the perfect Christmas present for the unrepentant punk rocker in your household. Even if you can't afford one and are just in the mood to peruse, they're well worth your time. Check it out here.
