This is a great book for the fashion scholar; it describes the cultural shifts of the 1960's and their impact on fashion, jewelry, and even entertainment. It is a book about lifestyle as much as fashion, just as the 1960's were. I have two of these so I'm selling this one; it is in great condition with a bit of a bend on the back cover, minor, but I wanted to mention it. It has 256 pages full of information, references, and period photographs. See lovely Lauren Hutton on the cover modeling a plastic dress. If you enjoy reading about fashion by the decade, this book is for you.
