A book detailing the history of Dr Martens boots is published next month by Chrysalis Impact, designed by Grade Design. It charts the rise of the Dr Marten brand, from its skinhead associations in the early 1960s through the 1970s punk scene and beyond. The book, called Dr Martens – The Story of an Icon, also incorporates a visual archive from boot manufacturer Briggs & Co, commissioned photography, vox pops and an interview with designer Wayne Hemingway. ‘We wanted to create a contemporary look for the book to lend it a slightly more populist appeal,’ says Paul Palmer-Edwards, creative director of Grade, which helped launch the Chrysalis Impact imprint last year.
