It’s Throwback Thursday! Which means we’re taking a look back at an era we love and the prints that made the time.

1960s_Print_ The 1960s saw the rise in television and media. New technologies made it possible for media images of the US Civil Rights Movement and the Vietnam War to be transmitted worldwide within hours, leading to greater political awareness. Active TV and media coverage provided the younger generation with a new way to look at celebrities creating a bigger buzz for people like Twiggy, Cathy McGowen, and The Beatles. Prints always reflect the zeitgeist of the time (the spirit of the time) and in the 60s that’s exactly what prints did. With the mod look in full swing, prints were heavily inspired by geometry, they used symmetrical shapes and florals, incorporating bold colors like dark greens, yellows, pinks, and orange.
