Paul Anderson’s upcoming Mod Art book now on pre-order

It isn’t out for some time, but Mod Art by Paul Anderson is already on pre-order at Amazon.

The book, from the author of the excellent Mods: The New Religion, is actually listed twice. But the listing from publisher Omnibus is down for a release on 10th April 2017. But note that the date certainly isn’t confirmed, with the other listing suggesting a date of 8th August 2017. Spring / summer 2017 sounds safe – and you can pre-order a copy now.

As for the book itself, that is a 224-page volume, with the pre-publicity thus:

Mod Art is the stunning visual journey from the early days of Pop Art with its strikingly vivid colours, up to today’s innovative Mod-influenced artists.

From the art schools of London to the 1960s clothing boutiques, the striking backdrops of Ready Steady Go!, the glistening chromed beauty of customised scooters, the explosive world of The Who’s auto-destructive art, the punk-tinged DIY basics of fanzines, the vibrant beat of acid jazz and the Union Jack-clad surge of Britpop, Mod-loving author Paul Anderson combines the most striking posters, advertisements, record covers, fliers, and fanzines from the Mod movement in one complete volume.

That’s all a bit loose and hopefully we’ll have something more concrete nearer to the publishing date. But if you want to pre-order now, you can. The list price is £25.
