On the occasion of Blondie’s fortieth anniversary, Chris Stein shares his
iconic and mostly unpublished photographs of Debbie Harry and the cool creatures
of the ’70s and ’80s New York rock scene. While a student at the School of
Visual Arts, Chris Stein photographed the downtown New York scene of the early
’70s, where he met Deborah Harry and cofounded Blondie. Their blend of punk,
dance, and hip-hop spawned a totally new sound, and Stein’s photographs helped
establish Harry as an international fashion and music icon. In photos and
stories direct from Stein, brilliant writer of hits like "Rapture" and "Heart of
Glass," this book provides a fascinating snapshot of the period before and
during Blondie’s huge rise, by someone who was part of and who helped to shape
the early punk music scene—at CBGB, Andy Warhol’s Factory, and early Bowery.
Stars such as David Bowie, the Ramones, Joan Jett, and Iggy Pop were part of
Stein’s world, as were fascinating downtown characters like Jean-Michel
Basquiat, Richard Hell, Stephen Sprouse, Anya Phillips, Divine, and many others.
As captured by one of its greatest artists and instigators, and designed by
Shepard Fairey, this book is a must-have celebration of the new-wave and punk
scene, whose influence on music and fashion is just as relevant today as it was
four decades ago. These copies will be personally signed by Chris and Debbie.
