Giddy, mid-sixties Swinging London at its merry best!
"Miniskirts and the Rolling Stones, the Beatles and now the Birds. That means girls--feathery and soft, swinging and defiantly independent...Who is the London girl? John d Green and his associates went through the agonies of choice, and here are fifty-five, not one of which is the typical girl. The beauty of this incandescent maelstrom is that each bird is pretty in her own individual way...Julie Christie, Susannah York, Dusty Springfield, 'Charley' Rampling, Marianne Faithful...Many represent the bewildering and fast-changing world of media: films, records, fashion photography, television, and theatre..."--from the jacket copy
A fantastic period piece that will appeal to fans of Sam Haskins, Wingaite Paine and the like.
