Lifestyle Illustration of the '60s
Edited and designed by Rian, this 580 page tome celebrates a decade of fashion-savvy lifestyle illustration by talents such as Lynn Buckham, Coby Whitmore and Andy Virgil. Carefully scanned and restored, the stylistically diverse and astonishingly beautiful selection spans a period that saw a social revolution from romantic homemaking to Psychedelia and thigh-booted Chelsea Girls. Before Wallpaper magazine reinvogorated the popularity of lifestyle illustration, these talented and underappreciated artists were documenting a decade with verve and style. Published by Fiell, the new arts and design-led publishing house from Charlotte and Peter Fiell. Fiell

Alex Fitch: "In the concluding show of the 'British Mavericks' series, which focuses on artists whose work is surprisingly avant-garde for the mainstream, I talk to comic book artist and graphic designer Rian Hughes about his work, from his early days in the small press and discovering European comics through Escape magazine to working on 2000AD and its spin off title, Revolver."
