(**New Arrival**) (Cocktails) Manvile, Bill. Saloon Society: The Diary of a Year Beyond Aspirin.

Illus. from photographs by David Attie. Design by Alexey Brodovitch. 10x7", jacket. First Edition. NY: Duell, Sloan & Pearce, [1960].

An early book by famed book designer Brodovitch. " Saloon Society denizens live in a world where there's no tomorrow, where the jugs of bourbon pour like sunshine, where the cigarette smoke is thick as dreams, where one rockets through the heightened moments of life." Saloon society in New York's Greenwich Village and beyond in the post-Beat, pre-60s, pre-Dylan, pre- Beatles era. Very good and bright.
