Thurston Moore, the frontman of Sonic Youth has collaborated on a new book of photographs with photographer Abby Banks. The book, titled Punk House, attempts to document the so-called "punk house":

[A house where] like-minded punks cram into a house usually intended to accommodate two or three people, resulting in low rent and, thus, extended hours of leisure for the residents to pursue their true interests.

[It] features anarchist warehouses, feminist collectives, tree houses, workshops, artists' studios, self-sufficient farms, hobo squats, community centers, basement bike shops, speakeasies, and all varieties of communal living spaces.

The book is due out on October on Harry N. Abrams.
