Publisher's Description

Selected as Book of the Week by Sarah Bradley

Perhaps best known as a collaborator on the legendary Beatles album cover for Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, Al Vandenburg’s first monograph On a Good Day brings together his London street portraits from the 1970 — 80’s capturing the decades the style, mood and tone.

In his afterward for the book Martin Barnes, Senior Curator of the V&A, notes that “Vandenberg sees all this with a sincere and perceptive eye and a sensitive understanding of character, regardless of social standing and cultural background... Every picture in this book is imbued with a positive, uplifting intention. He was gifted with somehow being able to strike a rapport with, and feel empathy for, his subjects almost instantly.”

“It’s a great time being young, with your whole life ahead of you. It’s a time for love, hope, dreaming, great creativity. It’s a time away from home, breaking free from parents, home, creating freedom. You feel you can be anything and do anything. The future looks very positive.” — Al Vandenberg
