Zombie 1979: Life at the Dawn of the Dead is a richly-illustrated visual history and personal narrative describing the early years of the pop culture “zombie phenomena,” inspired by the film Dawn of the Dead. During the early 1980s, under the ever-present threat of mushroom clouds on the horizon, apocalyptic movies paraded through dying Midwestern drive-in theaters and a new form of “zombie folk art” flourished in neighborhoods across suburban North America. This book collects end-of-the-world stories and snapshots from the waning years of the Cold War, and the dawn of the modern zombie.
