  1. I have this book, and a few others as well. They’re some of my favorites because they’re really…um…experimental. 🙂

  2. I know, every decade’s fashions look dated in hindsight – I’m sometimes surprised by just how odd stuff from the ’90s looks today, because it felt fairly neutral to me at the time – but the ’70s… I can’t even…

  3. ideas for surface decoration: “as you can see by these photos, we don’t %&$# around. these surfaces have been *owned*”

  4. “An air of simple dignity surrounds ‘Cloak for Endymion’”. “Dignity” is the last word I’d choose to describe a man dressed like a wedding cake.

  5. Bottom right, left page, bottom image: Wow, even cult leaders could be stylish in the 1970s!

  6. There’s some things from the 1970s I think we should bring back – men wearing the waist of their pants AT their waist instead of around their knees, disco music, horror movies –

    But this book, no. Unless someone can turn these outfits into Halloween costumes.

  7. That groovy rainbow cloak can be used in a production of that musical about Joseph and his dreamcoat.

    It was the 70’s. Maybe it was.

    1. I hope the model never saw the final product — he would be embarrassed to death. At least, I hope he would…

  8. I would wear that purple top with the birds on it. I wear things like that to my job…at the library!
