Books

I thought it would be worthwhile to start a new discussion on books. To narrow it down a bit, I suggest we stick to the more or less mod- related books; I wouldn´t want to bother you with each and every novel I´ve read. Among the ones I´ve read…

"I remember being quite pleased with "The Chords" logo that I made myself out of Iron-on "Wundaweb" that fitted perfectly just above the fishtail of my parka. I sold the Parka to a bit of a trendy lad at school. He wasn't a mod, he just liked the par…"

Over here in the US, the three button suit is out of fashion. That is fine with me, as the second hand and thrift stores have plenty, and at very low prices. I believe that many of the jackets I tried on today were quite long, some coming almost to…

"I remember the German paka, back in the 80's a lot of people bought them as a stop gap but like you swiftly moved on once a US one became available"

    Review by Roger Ames, 1960's Modernist.

    Whilst reading Tony Beesley’s comprehensive account of the development and subsequent revivals and later rebirths of the cult of Mod, my interest was reawakened and it has invigorated me to revisit my time as a teenager of fifteen, who, discovering Modernism, was set on the path of enlightenment.
