IDEA Books Paul Misso In The Vale of Avalon

Regular price £45

The new IDEA book is Paul Misso's In the Vale of Avalon: Glastonbury Festival 1971. A previously unseen photographic account of the first year of the festival with the pyramid stage.

Misso attended Glastonbury on the invite of film director Nic Roeg. Misso was Julie Christie's driver at the time. Roeg planned to make a film of the festival and Misso was to take photographs. To jump to the end of the suitably shaggy story, Roeg shot his footage but, on seeing Misso's photographs, declared that Paul had 'captured it' but he hadn't. The film was shelved, and these photographs were almost lost in the mists of time - save for their beautifully belated appearance in this book
