Summary
This book features a remarkable collection of largely unseen photographs of the 'Beat Generation' by renowned Magnum photographer Burt Glinn. This treasure trove of images was discovered when R A P was working with Burt Glinn's widow, Elena, on a larger retrospective of Glinn's work. The book features black and white shots, and also over 70 images in colour. These photographs manage to capture the raw energy of the 'Beat Generation' in a way that has never been seen before in print. The photographs were shot between 1957 and 1960 in New York and San Francisco and feature nearly everyone involved in the scene, including Allen Ginsberg and Jack Kerouac, poets like Gregory Corso and William Morris, and many more
