Want to visit the 70s? Look no further than shows like “I’m Dying Up Here” on Showtime and “The Deuce” on HBO. Plus, with ABC launching the 70s era “The Kids Are Alright” this fall, the 70s will be heating up even more.
But to really get a powerful look at the Me Decade, we recommend the book Grit and Glamour (Insight Editions) that features a range of photography by famed artist Allan Tannenbaum. It covers the styles and fashions of the iconic decade, including stars and artists such as the Rolling Stones, John Lennon, and Andy Warhol.
The journey back to the decadent decade of the 1970s with this dazzling collection of photographs from award-winning photographer Tannenbaum. The tome offers a tour-de-force journey into the visual glories of this exuberantly fashionable time. Iconic black-and-white and color photos from the Big Apple’s glamorous era paint an immersive picture of how the fashion gurus and stylish personalities of the decade influenced the way everyone dressed in public life.
With photographs of the myriad celebrities and scene-makers that surrounded them, we found that Tannenbaum’s lens provides an insider’s look at the wild fashions, flamboyant clothes and accessories of the 70s.
In fact, each section of the book focuses on a different aspect of the decade—from nightlife, fashion, and street scene to arts and entertainment and music, accompanied by insightful commentary and revealing anecdotes.
