Description

‘The Story of The Face’ by Paul Gorman offers a definitive exploration into “the magazine that changed culture”. Launched in 1980, The Face was created by NME Editor and Smash Hits creator Nick Logan, intended as a publication that would look beyond music into the heart of youth culture.

A much-needed voice of urban identity within the landscape of Margaret Thatcher’s Britain, The Face was the first lifestyle publication to establish a global benchmark for reporting trends in music, fashion, photography, film, media, politics and social issues.

Tracking the euphoric highs and chaotic lows of the game-changing magazine, ‘The Story of The Face’ moves from the celebratory early days of the publication characterised by Nick Knight’s work and the icons of 80s culture, to the later Britpop and Brit Art era that shifted focus from London to further reaches of the UK, incorporating cutting-edge fashion photography by creators like David Sims and Corrine Day.

Perfect as a gift for a fashion-follower or 80s zeitgeist-enthusiasts everywhere, Paul Gorman’s ‘The Story of The Face’ offers enlightening insight and showcases the most significant covers and features across the lifespan of the most influential magazine of its time.
