11 De La Haye, Amy and Cathie Dingwall Surfers Soulies Skinsheads and Skaters: Subcultural Style From the Forties to the Nineties
London The Victoria and Albert Museum 1996 First Edition Stiff Wraps As Issued Fine Issued Without Jacket Book Daniel McGrath [photography] 
Big, very colorful catalogue for a V & A exhibition which is great fun to look through, but can street style be museumized? Meticulous annotation of the fashions shown seems a little farcical after about 20 pages, but still, the exhibition and perhaps this catalogue are now part of the history of material culture, so let's enjoy our artifacts while we have them. Fine in stiff wrraps as issued.
