This review is from: The 1960s Scrapbook (Hardcover)I love nostalgia...especially '60s nostalgia...BUT, so often the books and TV shows produced are thin and disappointing. This book is neither. Every single one of these vast pages is crammed with images of so long ago. It is a feast for the eyes. Nostalgia for the soul.
The tremendous British culture, both pop and otherwise, of the 1960's deserves a book of this quality and calibre, so does anyone who loves and remembers Britain in that incredibly colourful and creative time.
As someone who was a small child then, I especially appreciated the pages dedicated to childhood imagery...the comics, the TV shows, the toys, sweet packaging, a whole page dedicated to ice cream packaging and advertising alone!(ZOOM, Orbit, Fab, even Kinky has not been forgotten)...it's all here and more...
The print, the colour, the presentation is of tremendous quality and generosity. Not a single corner has been cut.
I can't wait to give this book to everyone I know who has even the slightest memory or love for Britain in the 1960s.
Three cheers and Bravo! to every single person who was involved in creating this absolute masterpiece!
N.B. Ignore the dreadful pseudo Jimi Hendrix electro guitar art on the cover. It has nothing to do with this book. That's another 1960s all together and is totally misleading and might put off the very people this book is trying to appeal to.
