Details

This is a fascinating volume that celebrates the United States embracing British music, film, fashion and art in the 1960s. Capturing one of the most exciting artistic periods in recent history, this is an irresistible look back for all. It is filled with photographs of the many stars that crossed the pond, such as The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Sean Connery and Twiggy. This richly illustrated and informative volume celebrates the pivotal cultural moment when the United States took on a British accent. The huge volume of talent crossing the pond included the The Beatles, The Dave Clark Five, The Kinks, The Moody Blues, Them (and Van Morrison), The Yardbirds, The Who and, of course, the Rolling Stones. The invasion wasn't only musical: Peter O'Toole, Julie Andrews, Sean Connery and Michael Caine made a splash in Hollywood, while films like "Goldfinger", "Alfie" and "What's New, Pussycat?" topped box-office charts. "The Avengers" became cult TV and "Carnaby Street" defined hip style, turning Mary Quant, Twiggy and Jean Shrimpton into fashion icons. Filled with photographs that capture one of the most exciting artistic periods in recent history, this is an evocative, irresistible look back.
