5.0 out of 5 stars Visually stunning and good information, 23 Feb 2010
This review is from: 70s Style & Design (Hardcover)
A beautiful and lush book, superbly produced, with just the right amount of image to text for informative reading should you want a bit of distraction from Nietzsche and Derrida. As one occasionally does.

I was there at the time and although I was too shy to have experienced all of the hotspots personally, I am actually surprised to find the text amazingly accurate. Unusually for now, the names are spelled correctly throughout and all the text is pertinent, which is not always the case in reminiscences of this kind. But then, this is a Thames and Hudson production, and one would expect no less.

So far I have noted only one omission - that of Terry Jones, long-time editor of i-D who appears but without a credit. Worse things happen at sea. It's still a great book, fun to have, marvelous to dip into, and above all, as a reminder of what an incredibly rich visual environment we had at that time, before it all got into the hands of the exploiters, the money-makers, those who run everything into the ground.
