James Reid

Within this piece of Graphic Design, used as the Album Cover for the Sex Pistols in 1977, the visual metaphor of the internationally recogniseable image of the Queen, used with the tagline 'God Save The Queen', is a way of capturing the energy and frustrated anger of contemporary youth-culture., during the punk movement. Through this anarchic style, it is also mocking the creative refienement of Modernism, and is doing so by defacing the image of the Queen.
