Page : 364 pages

Compiled by CRASS over the course of about thirty years, this collection documents the band's vibrant history in full colour across 364 pages of photo's, handouts, posters and artwork. Much anticipated by their fans, CRASS's pictorial history is essential reading for anyone interested in the anarcho-punk movement and its visual stylings.

EXITSTENCIL PRESS HAS announced that the decades-in-the-making ‘Bullshit Crass’ book project, which was to result in a near definitive documentary history of the band, will now see the light of day as Crass: A Pictorial History, a large-format, full-colour hardback to be published in the spring of 2024.

For many years, Exitstencil Press had been appealing for help in compiling ephemera, photographs, ticket stubs, posters and flyers, “reaching out to all you hoarders that might still have a little something carefully treasured or forgotten in some deep drawer.” Most recently, an appeal went out for gig posters and tickets from shows ‘missing’ in the ‘Bullshit’ archives, conscious that “it would be great to have each place the band played at represented in some way.”

The ‘Bullshit’ book was described as “a dictionary, reference book, bible – however you want to refer to it”, with the confident expectation that the finished article would be “big and informative”.


Many different editors and compilers have been involved with the project over the years, and – as Exitstencil Press acknowledge – this has meant that traces of some of the contributors will have been misplaced along the way (and, most likely, some of the contributions too).
