Book Description

January 1, 2013 3942597209 978-3942597203 Box
After the success of Or Glory 21st Century Rockers, acclaimed photographer Horst A. Friedrichs captures the spirit of The Rockers Jacket in modern times. First coming into its own as a symbol of youth rebellion in the 50s, the Leather jacket continues to fascinate as much for its beauty as its mythology.

The leather jacket belongs to that select group of garments that can be described as iconic. No other western garment has been individualized that much, expressing the soul of who it belongs. The book features new exclusive pictures from the Lewis

leathers vintage jacket collection. Iconic leather jackets never seen before, but also showing the contemporary replicas by Lewis Leathers.

Editorial Reviews

Review

Pride & Glory: The Rockers' Jacket is a weighty, oversized photographic celebration of rock music and is a solid pick for a range of holdings, from avid music fans to fashion designers and photographic collections. It offers a survey packed with images of the rocker icon, the leather jacket, and includes jackets never seen before as well as contemporary replicas. In narrowing the focus to jackets of rockers, this provides a musical focus that blends art with history and celebrates one of the unheralded icons of the rock music world. Photography author Horst A. Friedrichs has focused his camera on rock icons before: this collection is an outstanding pick for any who would consider rock clothing's evolution and importance to the genre. --Midwest Book Review, Library Bookwatch

i got this book today and it is everything i was hoping for , the size of it , the images , subject , dont let the price put you off when you get it you will see that it is worth it ,it is heavy and nicely produce . this is not a book on leather jackets rather the jackets of the Rockers ( the cult that has been around for more than half a century now ) each have it own story to tell . it is terribly british in a nieces way true the lens of german photographer in London .
