Classic Rock T-shirts Over 200 Vintage Tees from the '70s and '80s by Sam Knee

T-shirts have become an essential fashion and lifestyle statement. However you wear them, or whatever picture they depict or slogan they announce, they are a form of self-definition for both the average person and those in cutting-edge subcultures. A true T-shirt aficionado can tell a vast amount about a person's style and attitude to life, just from their choice in shirts. This book takes a visual journey through the most popular genre, that of music shirts, looking at a range of T-shirts from the classic era of pop culture - the 1970s and 1980s. In addition, there are collector profile spreads that take a look at the collections and backstories of T-shirt fans and fanatics. It is a must-have purchase for all T-shirt enthusiasts!

About the Author

After dealing in vintage clothing at Portobello market in London, he and co-author Lisa Kidner sold a range of their clothes under the Heart of Glass label at UK retailer Whistles and under the Upper Fifth range at Topshop. Lisa and Sam live in London.
