American Denim: A New Folk Art is a 1975 book that details the extreme end of the 70s trend of customizing denim. Creatively patching holes or a few embroidered peace signs...nope, not in this book. The garments in this book were completely converted into something new as to be works of wearable art by hippie textile artists. The book is chock full of extreme and extremely creative denim make overs. The photos below, along with the shorts on the front cover, are by far my favorite. Enjoy!
