A new book called the 'A to Z of Mod', being published on 23 April by April and written by Mod experts Paolo Hewitt and Mark Baxter, apparently touches on every facet of the fad. And, particularly knowing Hewitt's obsession with all things Mod, it should be a decent addition to any style-savvy man's coffee table. --Menswear Buyer, March 2012
In a new book, The A to Z of Mod, authors Paolo Hewitt and Mark Baxter (aided by a foreword from actor Martin Freeman, who merits an entry in their too-cool-for-school alphabet), explore the sartorial, societal, and cultural aspects of Mod. You'll find everything here from Vespa scooters, Northern soul and Twiggy, to amphetamines, jazz, parkas and Fred Perry shirts. --The Scotsman, April 2012
