Publisher Description

The counter-culture movement of the 1960s is one of the most endlessly examined moments of the twentieth century. Widely regarded as the cradle of revolution, San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury grew from a small neighborhood to a worldwide phenomenon—a concept that extends far beyond the boundaries of the intersection itself.


Jim Marshall visually chronicled this area as perhaps no one else did. Renowned for his portraits of some of the greatest musicians of the era, Marshall covered Haight-Ashbury with the same unique eye that allowed him to amass a staggering archive of music photography and Grammy recognition for his work. In this one-of-a-kind book, the full extent of Marshall’s Haight-Ashbury photography is stunningly displayed. Written by bestselling music journalist Joel Selvin, the story behind each of these incomparable images is disclosed through a revealing narrative, lending the images a fascinating context and prospective.


Bold and beautifully crafted, The Haight offers fresh insight into the Summer of Love, Haight-Ashbury, and beyond.

Pictures are great, but the text is unreadable on a Mac.

This is more a review of format than content.I know, it’s a photo book. I understand that the publishers don’t want to include high res photos in order to protect copyrights, but at this resolution the text is completely unreadable in normal book format. I’ll have to try it on an iPad to see if the text is legible in that format.
