Books UK 1970's
There were a flurry of books published in the late seventies to capitalise on the new Skateboard boom. Most took the form of 'How to' books. Some contain interesting early photographs but many were assembled by those people working on the Skateboard magazines and thus contained a lot of photographs already published in the UK and USA magazines.
