The seminal Sniffin' Glue fanzine, collected here in its entirety, is a potent slice of 1967 / 77 punk culture.

The book, which reproduces all twelve issues as well as insights from its creator Mark Perry, is back in print and all copies come with a special print.

Sniffin' Glue may have been the closest thing to perfection ever achieved by a fanzine. Untroubled by the demands of owners, publishers, designers and production editors, it was a one-man enterprise that perfectly mirrored the spirit and manners of its subject matter - punk rock - by being intentionally amateurish, passionate, and crude.

Mark Perry's first issue (1 of 12) set the tone for an exercise in kitchen-table publishing that did not even have a kitchen table. Boldly scrawled in his bedroom, Sniffin' Glue started out as a fan's rallying cry, went on just long as it needed to (one year) and then stopped, as good punk enterprises should.
