I love this show -- it's a visual feast, the writing is sublime, and overall, I continue to be surprised. It makes a point in history come alive. It's so easy to look at it with 2010 eyes, but the trick is to look at it with sixties eyes as well. This book does a bit along that way. I love Tom & Lorenzo's Project Rungay posts about the show and its fashion -- it gives such a fantastic context to the look of it all. But this is an interesting book for other elements -- sex education pamphlets, for example. There's so much under the surface, and not having been there myself, it's nice to get this extra element of education. In such a stylish package, too.
