Over on our His Knibs site, we have a review of a book heading your way in a couple of days – Boutique London A History: King's Road to Carnaby Street by Richard Lester.
The title probably says it all. Published by ACC Ediitons, this 192-page book is part tourist guide from a bygone era, part history and part coffee table glossy, taking in retailers big and small from the early 60s to the mid-70s, but primarily focusing on swinging London at its height.
Check out the review now, with the book going on sale on September 30th 2010.
