"1969" is one of two books published this season by Contrasto that presents a montage of photographs from a specific year.
The power of these photographs calls to mind the year's principal birthdays and highlights its key players.
Among the events "1969" records are the moon landing, Woodstock, John and Yokos Bed-In and the VietnamWar; the debuts of Led Zeppelin, Genesis and David Bowie; the films "The Graduate", "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid", and "Easy Rider"; and the births of such contemporary icons as Jennifer Lopez, Jennifer Aniston, Christian Slater, Jack Black and Tanita Tikaram.
