Celebrate 50 years with 'Woodstock: 3 Days of Peace & Music'

This August 1969 photograph by Bill Eppridge is reproduced from Woodstock: 3 Days of Peace & Music, the only official fiftieth anniversary book on the epic music festival that crystallized the American hippie counter-culture for the rest of the world. (See the amazing book trailer here.) Authored by Michael Lang, the festival’s original organizer, it is so much more than another music book. The photography is vivid and expertly curated to reflect not just the performers and the crowd, but the building of the event and the community surrounding it. The ephemera is rich. The texts are illuminating. And the design is basically perfect. As the official August 15–18 anniversary approaches, we highly recommend this volume for music lovers, utopians and historians of every generation. “At Woodstock, we would focus our energy on peace," Lang writes, "setting aside the onstage discussion of political issues to just groove on what might be possible."
