Andrew Luecke will speak about and sign his new book, Cool: Style, Sound, and Subversion, on Thursday, September 21st at 7:30pm.
About the Book:
It's no secret that the youth of the world buck mainstream culture every chance they get, blazing countercultural trails in the process. Mainstream society runs to catch up, to co-opt them, and drag them to the mainstream. Cool is equal parts historical chronicle and handbook of the myriad subcultures that have influenced style. Lavish with original illustrations, Cool looks at the fashion, the art, the films, the books, the music, and historical context of these style movements, many of which became a norm.
