Retro: the culture of revival

Retro: the culture of revival

Guffey, Elizabeth E; Dawsonera

Elizabeth Guffey cuts through the ambiguities of the term retro and examines its roots, evolution and myriad manifestations. She discusses ensuing retro rivals, from 50s fashion to 80s pop, and considers its various forms - form design, fashion, graphics and music - as well as how advertisers have capitalized on communal memories
