Editorial Reviews

Eric Nash
Avedon, with his level gaze both at the exhilaration of the era and the toll it took on people's lives, shows that anyone who merely romanticizes the 60's didn't live through them.
—The New York Times Book Review
Weekly Editors Entertainment
An unguarded Janis Joplin and a frightfully scarred Andy Warhol are just some of the images in this photograph collection—made even more mesmerizing by the inclusion of telling interviews with the subjects.

    A view from the extreme.

    This is an expose of the most radical artists of the 1960s. The presentation is honest and important, however, not a balanced representatioon of the art world in the 1960s. John Lenin on the cover is misleading as the book is not really about the movement that he was involved with as much as the radical artists of NYC at the time.
    This book is shrink wrapped for a reason and should have a parental advisory sticker.

    I Also Recommend:

    A fine addition to anyone's library.

    Richard Avedon is one of my favorite photographers. He was one of the 20th century's great photographers. 'The Sixties' is the 4th Avedon collection that I have purchased. I paid under $20 for it-would have paid more.
    The book featuring the photographs that Avedon took of President-elect Kennedy and family is also worth buying.

    Believe me, if you were on the West coast in the sixties (particularly '69) this tome is WAY offbase! I just can't believe the audacity to title this book 'The Sixties'!!!! I don't even recognize, or care about, most of the people in these photos. Please, the sixties, on the West Coast, were so much more than this! I should copy all my old album inserts (Johnny Winter)....It would be soo much more entertaining!This was free love, the age of Aquarius, revolution/sex/drugs/rocknroll.....this doesn't even come close! Love ins.....The Strip....the Haight.......All missing! Don't waste your money The Sixties ain't here!
