Examining and illustrating the art scene surrounding the birth of modernism and its simultaneous rise among the burgeoning working class Mod scene of the Sixties, Paul Anderson’s Mod Art is the definitive work on the visual culture of Mod.
With interviews from key artists, scene members and a rich understanding of how the collision of high art and mass culture formed mod art, this book will appeal to fans of history, music, fashion and art.
Gorgeously illustrated with a treasure trove of hundreds of colour photographs of famous, rediscovered and rare images from the era, Mod Art will be read and re-read for years to come.
Paul Anderson’s previous book, Mods: The New Religion, is a best seller in the genre and considered a defining work on the subculture.
‘… continues to shrine a light on a subculture that has seeped into all aspects of music, fashion, art and film over the past six decades…. brought to life thanks to a treasure trove of photographs, illustrations, reproduced concert flyers and adverts and famous and infamous record sleeves. Mod Art is a hugely enjoyable trip.’ Classic Pop
