Flying Over England

In the late 1980s and early 90s Mike Pendegast spent seven years travelling up and down the country to different raves, clubs and similar events, collecting all the flyers of those events along the way.

Across this book Mike documents an incredible generational movement that still carries so much weight even to this day.

Mike goes on to show us that such powerful memories can never be buried or discarded, and flyers are an artistic history of the subculture. This was a scene that sprang from austerity into an underground, an anti-establishment movement that must be recorded as a significant era that, some may argue, altered the course of history.

1991–93 was the golden age of rave art with flyers developing from photocopied, black and white scribbles of the late 80s to highly elaborate works of illustration.
