By Simon Wells
While many books, films and documentaries claim to have captured the phenomenon that was Swinging London, just one magazine was present in the capital during the 1960s to illustrate this extraordinary moment as it unravelled. London Life emerged in October 1965 and, over the next fifteen months, would document the capital in action at its absolute zenith.
With imagery from the likes of David Bailey, Duffy and Terence Donovan, designs from Peter Blake, David Hockney, Gerald Scarfe and fledgling artist Ian Dury plus words and opinions from those riding high on the city's cutting-edge, London Life remains the coolest document from the capital's most exciting period.
Collected for the first time, including forewords from Peter Blake and David Puttnam and a scene-setting introduction from Simon Wells, London Life offers a remarkable and candid view on a period when London was the creative hub of the world.
'London Life Magazine was unique in documenting London in the Swinging Sixties. Simon Wells’s book masterfully collates the very best of London Life, capturing the zeitgeist perfectly. It’s the type of book that you would display proudly on your coffee table. One that you would never tire of picking up, dipping into and leafing through whenever you have five minutes’ downtime. 9/10' - Louder than War
