BETTER BOOKZ. London, 1967

In the 1950s and 1960s, London underwent a cultural revolution, which altered forever the trajectory of contemporary art and gave rise to a radical re-formulation of artistic production. United in their distrust of culture, the emerging generation of post-war artists, poets and writers were searching for new ways of responding to their alienation from the previous generation and the smothering geopolitical anxiety of the cold war.
Many of these artists found each other while taking refuge at Tony Godwin's Charing Cross bookshop, Better Books.
