'Sex Sense and Nonsense' is an amusing, revealing look at the '60s as you've never seen them before. REVIEWS: "Felicity Green was as much responsible for putting the swing into the '60s as any of us including Mary Quant and me!" - Vidal Sassoon "I plunged in to the London '60s scene and broke all the rules - for me fashion is not frivolous, it's part of being alive. Felicity at the Daily Mirror understood this - and understood me." - Mary Quant "Felicity was the journalist who first put '60s fashions in newspapers. She recognised our scene and its potential to influence and change fashion and she put us all together, the models, the photographers with the clothes and hairstyles we all wanted to wear - and Felicity made it news." - Terry O'Neill 111 colour and 37 b/w photographs
