Focusing on French culture of the 70's, and rediscovering often forgotten jewels of litterature, movies and music, it's definitely a must-have for anyone looking for real and quality-French culture of the 70's.
It was a pleasure and honor to illustrate this great article about the "loulous", the real french motorized outlaws that terrorized suburbia in that decade. Mad props to Rod of Fluoglacial for the brilliant article.
