Lifestyle Illustrations of the 60s
Lifestyle Illustration of the 1960s is a glorious celebration of the Swinging Sixties—a groundbreaking decade heralding a new creativity, freedom and liberation. This lavishly illustrated book surveys how those years were depicted by illustrators for some of the UK's best-selling magazines. Lifestyle Illustration of the 1960s is a stunning survey of magazine artwork from the Sixties. It not only provides a fascinating insight into the extraordinary artistic talents of the illustrators featured, but also reveals the social aspirations of this unprecedented era of political optimism and sexual freedom.
