With an essay by Jon Savage
Beatles to Bowie explores the leading pop music personalities who helped create ‘Swinging London’ in the 1960s. With over 300 photographs and illustrations, it reveals how image, music, fashion, and performance combined to make these musicians the leading icons of their time and London the world’s cultural capital.
Featuring portraits of over seventy musicians and singers, and the work of over sixty photographers, this book presents the first in-depth overview of pop portraits in the 1960s. Artists featured include Cliff Richard, The Kinks, The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Lulu, Bob Dylan, Dusty Springfield, Led Zeppelin, T-Rex, The Who and many more, with works by photographers Cecil Beaton, Angus McBean, David Bailey, Robert Whitaker and Fiona Adams.
Please note that a German language edition of the book is available directly from Schirmer/Mosel
