MEDIA REVIEWS
"Summer of Love: Art, Fashion, and Rock and Roll does a remarkable job conveying both the ideas and the content of an exhibition many of us will never see. Its precision focus on one moment in one city in American history is the book's greatest strength." * PopMatters *
"The beautifully illustrated and very readable work provides the social, cultural, and political background that laid the era's foundation." * Library Journal *
