La Marche du Temps


Some more early illustrations by Polish born artist Wojtek Siudmak for Plexus, the bimonthly French erotic magazine which ran from April 1966 - June 1970. Siudmak became one of the many regular contributors to the publication towards the end of the decade after he had relocated to France, these particular graphics were used frequently in varying colourways throughout the later issues as an introduction to the news, reviews and event pages etc. You can view other examples of the artist's work for the magazine during this period via the labels at the end of the page.

Les 15 Revolutions De La Mode (1968)

Les 15 Revolutions De La Mode


I've had this copy of Les 15 Revolutions De La Mode by Gisèle D'Assailly in my collection since the mid-90s, it's an amazing large format/coffee table fashion history reference book originally published in 1968, comprising of 251 pages, each one heavily illustrated throughout. However, in keeping with the general timeline of this blog (apart from the first image on the cover) these particular scans are all from the final chapter of the book which concentrates on design from the 1960s, and features the work of Cardin, Courrèges and Saint Laurent.
