Glam Rock: Dandies in the Underworld by Alwyn W. Turner

Glam Rock book

Films, fashion, Sci-Fi and, most importantly, the music - they all get a look-in as part of Alwyn W. Turner's new book Glam Rock: Dandies in the Underworld.

This glossy, highly illustrated book covers the full cycle of Glam Rock, from birth to its legacy, and actually draws on the collections of the V&A museum for its material. This makes for some different pictures to the usual examples that are endlessly trotted out. All of the names you'd expect are in there, such as David Bowie and T Rex, and are linked to what artists such as Lou Reed and Alice Cooper were doing in the States. 

The diverse material is all pulled together in a stylish design, suitable for the most glam of bookshelves. 

You can pick up a copy for £18.25 from Foyles
