Revolt into Style: The Pop Arts in Britain [1970]

£60.00

Product description

Published in 1970 by Allen Lane, the Penguin Press.

Written by George Melly (English jazz and blues singer, critic, writer and lecturer), this is a fascinating analytical history of popular culture in the 1960s, from the various waves of music, the 'pop art' movement, fashion, media & advertising, theatre & television, to the 'permissive' society and attitudes to drug use. An idiosyncratic and interesting read for anyone interested in that period. Includes a useful index.

Complete with the original unclipped dust jacket. - unclipped. There is a small amount of wear on the dust jacket which has been neatly repaired with sticky tape. However the board cover and contents are all in but the book itself is in a good clean condition. Overall good to very good condition.
