“The essential book on Mod girls. From the originals to the modern day, across the globe, all sharing their pictures and stories”.

From its nebulous beginnings in the latter part of the 50’s the peacock male’s rise into the conscious of the nation has been well documented. The Mod movement as it became known was synonymous with style, soul, Italian scooters, amphetamines and an all-encompassing, twenty-four hour lifestyle.

It’s pursuit of Modernism was exacting and meritocratic, and its embracing of wider non British culture was a direct challenge to the establishment within its Isle’s.
