Nova, 1965-1975

£100.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

"Nova: 1965-1975" is a celebration of the British style magazine of the 60s and 70s. A product of the creative cauldron in "Swinging London", Nova was avant-garde in every aspect: its typography and layout, illustration and photography.;It offered a mixture of daring and artistic imagery with unconstrained writing which had never been done before, and marked a period of real innovation in magazine design. The book shows every Nova cover, and over 200 photographs and layouts of key features.;The accompanying words tell the story of the magazine and the people who made it, how Nova influenced and was influenced by the times, and is complemented by a "time-line" of events, the signposts of the era. But the lavishly reproduced images, such as the groundbreaking "How to Undress in Front of Your Husband" speak largely for themselves.;Not only of specialist interest to designers and artists, and nostalgic interest to avid subscribers, this is also a visual document of times of great change, of the political and cultural upheavals which brought us platform soles and flares, Mick Jagger and Ted Heath.;David Hillman was art director for "Nova" from 1969 until it closed in 1975. He was also deputy editor during that time.;Harry Peccinotti was the magazine's first art director and regular photographer throughout.

This edition has a label in the bottom right hand corner detailing the price from a previous shop.

Oxfam Bookshop Chiswick

Oxfam Books & Music Turnham Green is a local favourite for reasonably priced second hand books, CD's, DVD's and vinyl. Come along and have a good browse...


Turn left at Turnham Green tube, head under the bridge and we're a short walk along on the left.  Alternatively, head up Turnham Green Terrace from Chiswick High Road, and we're further up on the right.  Local bus routes include the E3, 27, 94, 237 and 272.


Donations of books, CD's DVD's and vinyl are very welcome.  If coming by car, you can stop to unload on the double yellow lines on the same side of the road as the shop, but on no account mount the pavement or park at the bus stop on the opposite side as you will be fined.  Overall, it's less tense to come to our side entrance on Thornton Avenue - access from Chiswick High Road, follow the No Through Road signs, and at the end you will see our door which has a grill on it and a buzzer to press for attention.  


We're looking forward to seeing you soon!
