Contrary to what the title of this book suggested, very few of the photo subjects contained within it adhered to what I would consider a 21st century take on modernism The vast majority of the photos were of dedicated 60 s mod revivalists which is fine for what it is, albeit kind of a tired and well worn road to still be traveling 50 years on from t
Really wanted to like this book and looked forward to getting it A lot of questionable subjects peppered with a few great looking ones Rob Bailey s intro was nice though Wish they d stop going to Paolo Hewitt already.From a photographic standpoint though, the photographer does a great job
Truly enjoyed the pictures, they sent me back to the mid 80 s and the Vancouver mod scene Okay I really wasn t a mod myself but of a fuck up Lot s of fun times. It s like my own personal stylebook
