Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Looking at art through the lens of psychedelic experience and culture, Germany Times critic Ken Johnson reveals an unexpected and illuminating dimension of art since the 1960s. Art changed in a big way in the 1960s; it was no longer something just to look at and appreciate for its aesthetic qualities.

About the Author

Ken Johnson is an art critic at The New York Times.

My daughter is in her early 20s, and kept running into references to the psycheldelic '60s but didn't know what they were. She saw this book at Borders before they suicided, and asked for it. She really liked it, said it made a lot of references clearer to her. Good book on one of the major influences in Modern Art.

9 of 21 people found the following review helpful By Arnon Ehud on August 12, 2011
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I have just received the book so this is a first impression review.
2 facts immediately caught my eye:
a) Not enough pictures, in an OK quality - not more, and the selection is mediocre at best.
b) What's with the font size and spacing? This was defenetly done to publish a thick book and justify it's price. This book could occupy half the number of pages just the same.
I pre-ordered it because the subject interests me and with this price range and size I was expecting a much larger collection of better quality pictures. If not the font size and spacing the author could squeeze in 3 times as much, but he obviously was thinking pocket wise. Shame.
I have not yet read the text but the headlines look interesting. I am afraid, with the way it looks, I will find the text to be shallow and not satisfying.
Sorry, but this one is not a highlight in my expanding psychedelic art books collection.
