You probably know all about Mark Baxter. London’s man about town, he’s also been responsible or partly-responsible for some of the best books around in recent years. Of course, the most recent of those was the Scorcha book, produced alongside Paul Anderson.

If that wasn’t enough, Mark also contributes to the Art Gallery Clothing site on a variety of Mod-friendly subjects and it’s these mini articles that form the backbone of this book. From music and film through to clothing and literature, he’s probably dwelled on it at some point.

Have a look at the AGC site to see the variety of topics and to get an idea of just what is in the book. Wide and extensive probably covers it, with 25 articles packed into the book, from David Bowie and The Who through to Tommy Nutter and Steve McQueen.

From articles to a book (which is a concept I rather like) and one that covers 112 pages, with illustrations by Lewis Wharton (Little Barrie) and a foreword by Gary Crowley.

Just 250 copies are being produced, with the first 25 signed by Mark Baxter and Gary Crowley.

You can only get it via Art Gallery Clothing and it’s available now for £15.

Update: This did sell out, but you can pre-order for a copy of the second run of the book.

Love Modculture? If you enjoy what you read or have benefitted from it and want to help with the ever-increasing costs of the site, you can always buy me a coffee.
