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.

HASH(0x86f67b4c) out of 5 stars 70's Style Lives On! 19 Dec. 2009
By Xan Hart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
If you remember the 70's with fondness, this will bring it all back and remind you why you loved the times so much. The 60's were just the setup for the manifestation stage of the spirit, philosophy, and urge to stretch out, spread your wings and have a good time.

Seeing the trans-Atlantic richness of design accumulated in this very beautiful book helped me see how grounded my own ongoing sense of design is in the 70's aesthetic. Thames & Hudson continues their tradition of providing great art books, good commentary and balance, and juicy visuals.

We needed this survey of what the essence of that decade was. Much of it still looks very Now and if it doesn't to you, the exhuberance and playfulness will make you long for a return. If so, you might enjoy my out-of-print book from 1974, Native Funk & Flash: An Emerging Folk Art, found in the used books section where you can still find a few old copies. (Just look for Funk & Flash.)

Whoa this is a truly beautiful book. And well-written! I love it. It shows a wide variety of styles and explains their origins. The 30's-inspired glammy looks, the japanese and italian designers that were hot, the exercise apparel fad. Just great stuff. And the graphics are phenomenal.

this is a very thorough and insightful overview of the style and design tendencies of the 70's as well as their earlier roots in previous decades' trends. Great pics too.
