Red cloth boards with gilt lettering to spine. Some foxing to edges of text block (mainly to top-edge).

Light browning to reverse. *** “This was the beginning of the Rock era, everything was new and rough. The whole teenage thing was just beginning. New: Rock itself and wild clothes and juke boxes and froth on the top of coffee.” Nik Cohn’s cynical and often hilarious depiction of a new era, rumoured to have been the inspiration to David Bowie’s album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars. As hip and knowing as the iconic jacket design by Alan Aldridge.
