Featuring a wide array of iconic rock posters, period photographs, music memorabilia and light shows, “out-of-this-world” clothing, and avant-garde films, this catalogue celebrates San Francisco’s rebellious and colorful counterculture that blossomed in the years surrounding the 1967 Summer of Love. This book explores, through essays and a succession of thematic plates, the visual and material cultures of a generation searching for personal fulfillment and social change. Presenting key cultural artifacts of the time, Summer of Love introduces and explores the events and experiences that today define this dynamic era.
