Book Description

1 Aug 2005
Part shopping guide, part lifestyle handbook, 'The Essential Guide to London's Retro Shops' is a timely and colourful celebration of the growing demand for all things vintage. Whether it's sixties scooters, vintage clothes, or original furniture classics, the passion for the recent past is causing a stir worldwide, and nowhere more so than in London. Appealing to locals and tourists alike, this guide covers a huge variety of retro shops sorted into five main types: furniture and design (Pad), clothing and accessories (Threads), music (Tunes), cars, scooters and bikes (Wheels), and cafes and bars (Nosh). The book is divided into five London regions, each with its own detailed map. All the entries include an engaging description of what the shop or venue has to offer, together with contact information and opening times. The shops and their goods are illustrated with the author's own high-quality photographs. This unique book, impeccably researched and written by an expert in the field, will be a welcome addition to the choice of shopping guides to London.

About the Author

Clive Dunkley is an expert on all things retro. Like some urban Indiana Jones, he has spent many years unearthing London's retro treasures. To fund his addiction to 50s shirts, vintage vinyl and rare old copies of 'Vogue' he was an investment banker before deciding to bring together all his insights into a book. Educated at Foyles, The 100 Club and Cambridge he now lives with his young family in Brighton and is saving up for a car with fins. He has visted all the 136 shops, bars and restaurants in this guide, as well as interviewing all the owners.

5.0 out of 5 stars At last a book that shows me where to go! 10 Jan 2006
This is a tremendous book for anyone interested in the music and fashion of the 50's and 60's. I have been a devoted fan of this period for ages an now at last have a guide to show me all the haunts in London to indulge my passion! Its amazing just how many there are - you will probably find there is one just hidden around the corner from you!
Very informative and well written - a gem.
