Product Synopsis

This beautifully illustrated book paints a multifaceted portrait of sixties London and explores the reasons why it became the epicentre of a cultural boom that resounded around the world and whose echoes can still be heard today. London in the 1960s was the embodiment of everything that was inspirational, innovative and progressive. Powered by the three key elements of youth, affluence and the mass media, the city became the hub of sixties pop culture, with its bold and creative spirit attracting an international cast of artists and luminaries in all fields, from pop music and fashion to literature and the visual arts. While a new aristocracy of rockstars and trendsetters ruled the roost, Pop art took a witty and detached view of contemporary consumerism and architecture looked towards a utopian future.

This title features a stellar array of artists, photographers, musicians, models, writers, designers and architects presented in context, including David Hockney, Francis Bacon, David Bailey, Alan Aldridge, Kenneth Tynan, Mick Jagger, The Beatles, Twiggy, Jean Shrimpton, Ron Heron, Richard Hamilton, Peter Blake, Lucian Freud, Dirk Bogarde, Julie Christie, Marianne Faithful, Michael Caine, Mary Quant, Bridget Riley, Diana Rigg and many, many more.
