Hellzapoppin'! The Art of Flying Nun (Book) - Standard Edition
Unruly art and design from the early years of Flying Nun Records. From rare collectible records and vintage posters to original artworks and paste-up designs, this book explores the art and artists behind some of New Zealand’s favourite bands.
Entertaining essays from Peter Vangioni, Kath Webster, Russell Brown and Flying Nun founder Roger Shepherd are interspersed with brief interview-style contributions from the people responsible for creating the art of the label. Heavily illustrated, it features original artwork for the records and posters, photography from the archives, and rarely seen vinyl releases and posters.
The Flying Nun aesthetic was foundational to a generation of impressionable young creators and agitators. By talking to the people responsible, this book will burst a few enduring myths, and maybe start some new ones.
