Hardcover with dust jacket, black cloth with silver spine titles, 16 by 24 cm, 189 pp. Very good with light cover and edge wear, some foxing on the fore edge of the textblock, and the leaves are just starting to yellow; the jacket has light foxing on the verso. From the front flap: “The Soul Stylists is about forty years of Modernism. A world of clothes and music, highly influential but one deliberately hidden away for years from mainstream media. This book explores the enduring relationship that exists between American black music and British working-class style, tracing a Mod tradition that began in Soho just after the Second World War and continues to this day. From Mod to Casual, from Skinhead to Northern Souler, the soul stylists are an amazing family joined together by a tradition of secrecy, exclusivity and absolute indifference towards the outside world. They pass unnoticed because soul stylists always shun the spotlight. To them, attention to detail is far more important than attention seeking. And here in this book, for the very first time, are some of their stories.” No writing, highlighting, names, or other markings. The dust jacket is in a fresh mylar cover. Dust jacket present.
