The Mirror Steamed Over: Love and pop in London, 1962 by Anthony Byrt is our Book of the Week this week. Byrt looks at a key moment in the development of pop and conceptual art through the relationships between New Zealander Barrie Bates (who became Billy Apple), painter David Hockney, and writer Ann Quin. The book is hugely readable and enjoyable, and provides perspective on a period of remarkable possibility and change.
