"Gorgeous photography from a fascinating time"

Robert Altman is certainly worth his weight in photography gold. This book contains top-quality black and white photographs that really capture the variety of personalities and events during this period beautifully. Although there is no writing bar the introduction and photo descriptions, if you enjoy the visual aspects of this tumultuous decade, you'll find it easy to get lost within these great pictures.


Abbie Hoffman, Mick Jagger, Ken Kesey and Grace Slick are among the iconic 1960s figures immortalised in pictures and commentary by Altman, a legendary photographer from Rolling Stone magazine's early heyday. Juxtaposing tuned-in, turned-on and dropped-out Haight Ashbury hippies with immense history-making shots of concert and peace marches, The Sixties portrays the youth revolution in full swing.
