I’m very late to the Mod: A Very British Style, by Richard Weight, party, but have finally dug in and so far it’s the best book ever. No book store in the city had a copy left and neither did Amazon, and it’s not out in paper yet. So last night I realized my library hold was in at a different branch because mine is closed for renovations and walked super far to pick it up and it only has a little bit of food on it! The introduction repurposes a Laszlo Moholy-Nagy quote to comment on shopping, which was a get out of my soul moment. I’m actually too excited to read it - I have to keep stopping because I can’t concentrate due to too much enjoyment. The only vaguely related book-length material I’ve read is Paolo Hewitt’s The Soul Stylists, which is a pretty, ahem, casual study. I will blog my updated disappointment / redactions later on.
