Not to be confused with the George Perry book, London in the Sixties by Rainer Metzger is a new hardback release by Thames & Hudson.

Released tomorrow, the book is, as you might have guessed, a look at the city at the height of its swinging era. 368 pages with 342 illustrations (including 137 in colour), the book features the great and the good of this particular era, including David Hockney, Francis Bacon, David Bailey, The Beatles, Peter Blake, Mary Quant, Diana Rigg, Bridget Riley and many more, all presented in context and showing how they contributed to a city at (arguably) its cultural height.

Officially priced at £28, you can grab one from Amazon for £17.79.
