English, Closebound/Gebunden mit Schutzumschlag, 18.5x18.5 cm, 98 pages, throughout b&w and color illustrations; The fifties and sixties were great times for the unattached and untrammeled single guy, free to adopt and outlandishly cool persona and a distinctive style of music, humor, lingo, threads, and digs. In Hi-Fi's & Hi-Balls, Steven Guarnaccia and Bob Sloan - the team who brought you A Stiff Drink and a Close Shave - continue their visual tour of modern manhood with this homage to the swinging bachelor life. It's all here: what they listened to, what they laughed at, what they wore, how they decorated, and how they expressed themselves - all in pursuit of the fair sex. Whether you were once lucky enough to be (or date!) a space-age bachelor, or whether you now aspire to this level of historic greatness, this book deserves a place of honor on your chrome-trimmed, amoebashaped coffee table.
