SWINGING SIXTIES: An Iconic Decade in Pictures

IAN PENBERTHYM & C. WATSON    Book Number: 87353    Product format: Paperback

Mary Quant, the Beatles, Carnaby Street, King's Road, the mini, Ready-Steady-Go! and Top of the Pops, here are the fashions, the music and the groovy baby years of the sixties. Fashion and the cultural scene flourished in Britain during the sixties and a youth-orientated phenomenon emphasised all that was new and modern in a period of optimism and hedonism after the austerity of the post-war years. Fashion designers experimented with new materials and styles, trendy photographers snapped iconic models, and pop music became the theme tune of a vibrant decade. Here is a fantastic celebration in almost 350 photos, some colour, all nostalgic, of Hippies, Mods, the slogans, flower power and festivals, bold patterns and crisp tailoring, furs and feathers, space age designs and the Pop Art movement, poets, new TV shows like The Saint and The Avengers, cults and love ins. A superb gallery, captioned full page photos. 300pp in square softback.
