With social media and all the drama series and films available on Netflix and other platforms, it is no surprise that people tend to spend more and more time staying in, while clubbing seems to almost be something of the past. Whether clubbing will come back with a vengeance is difficult to tell, but a new graphic book, Clubbed: a visual history of clubbing music, serves as a visual conclusion of the previous chapters.
Complied by Rick Banks and published by Face37 Ltd, Clubbed celebrates the best graphic design in UK clubs from the last 35 years. Inside the book you can find images of club logos, flyers, posters, tickets, menus and more. Starting from the legendary Haçienda club in Manchester from the 1980s, the book features famous names in the electronic music scene including Cream, Renaissance, Ministry of Sound, to the more recent players such as Fabric, Boiler Room and Resident Advisor.
