This is a wonderfully warm and humorous homage that captures the spirit of the grooviest decade ever in over a hundred pen and ink drawings by Bob Dewar. A decade when everyone (well, almost everyone) turned on, tuned in and dropped out - or at least just hung loose. Pefect for any nostalgic, still young at heart, swinger or hippy, all those cats and chicks who lived through the era as well as all those who dig the style, verve and panache of the Swinging Sixties. Bob Dewar is also the bestselling author of Soor Plooms and Sair Knees: Growing up in Scotland after the War.
Beatniks and Beehives The Swinging Sixties by Bob Dewar
The Sixties put an end to drab post-war austerity in a psychedelic explosion of colour, fashion, music, new attitudes and revolution (sexual and otherwise). From Flower Power, The Beatles, Mary Quant and G Plan furniture to marijuana, mini skirts, flush panel doors, Pan's People and the hostess trolley.
