From iconic photos of Jane Fonda and Sean Connery suited up for film roles to crowd shots of NYC streets, British dance halls, and hip rock festivals, David Hurn’s ’60s photography captures the breadth and style of the famously turbulent decade. Now they’re together in one gorgeous book: The 1960s Photographed by David Hurn.

The book, from Reel Art Press, launches today. Its release will coincide with an exhibition at Magnum Print Room in London which runs until January 31, 2016. Below, find eight photos from the book, including shots of The Beatles and Fonda in full Barbarella mode.

England, 1963. The Hammersmith Palais was the most famous mass dance hall of the ’60s. Weekends were crammed with youth, mainly trying to find a girlfriend or boyfriend. For its time, the venue was very multicultural. Joe Loss Orchestra (fronted at the time by singer Rose Brennan), one of the most successful bands of the ’50s and ’60s, had a residency at the Hammersmith.
