So, so good: a PDF scan of a 1977 guide to making yourself over as a punk. Not just tips on how to dress ("Wear a black lace stocking on one leg and a striped knee sock on the other"), but on how to do your hair ("bright redheads are 'in'"), how to do your makeup ("Star Wars is as good a guide as any"), how to pogo ("Frenzied movements tell a story of confrontations and frustration"), and how to come up with a punk name for yourself. Featuring Bobby Pyn, soon to be known as Darby Crash, as a model.

(Via the punks over at Coudal Partners, who rightly note that you should just download the entire PDF.)
