The Graphic Art of the Underground: A Countercultural History takes the reader on a dazzling journey through the visual art and design of alternative and youth cultures from the 1950s to the present day.

Ian Lowey and Suzy Prince's compelling account draws upon the work of an array of artistic figures many of whose lives have proved as colourful as their work such as Ed 'Big Daddy' Roth, Kenny 'Von Dutch' Howard, Robert Williams, Robert Crumb, Martin Sharp, Jamie Reid, Linder Sterling, Gee Vaucher, Winston Smith, Barney Bubbles, Mark Ryden, Shag, Camille Rose Garcia, Marion Peck and Pete Fowler among numerous others.
