Beatniks and Beehives : The Swinging Sixties, Paperback / softback Book

Beatniks and Beehives : The Swinging Sixties Paperback / softback


The Sixties put an end to drab post-war austerity in a psychedelic explosion of colour, fashion, music, new attitudes and revolution (sexual and otherwise).

In this follow-up to his best-selling Soor Plooms and Sair Knees: Growing up in Scotland after the War, Bob Dewar celebrates the grooviest decade ever in over a hundred pen and ink drawings which capture the spirit of the time when everyone (well, almost everyone) turned on, tuned in and dropped out - or at least just hung loose.

From Flower Power, The Beatles, Mary Quant and G Plan furniture to marijuana, mini skirts, flush panel doors, Pan's People and the hostess trolley, this is a warm and humorous homage that will appeal to all those cats and chicks who lived through the era as well as all those who dig the style, verve and panache of the Swinging Sixties.
