Nova 1965–1975 celebrates one of the most influential magazines in history. The book features many of the iconic magazine covers along with articles from it's decade-long output and looks at them in detail.

Known as ‘the thinking woman’s magazine’ Nova was a British publication that set itself apart from its contemporaries by creating a magazine that was not just about fashion but was also politically, socially and sexually aware. The magazine covered issues that were controversial at the time, such as abortion, racism, gay rights and The Pill, and featured writers such as Susan Sontag, Harold Pinter, Elizabeth David, Prue Leith, William Trevor, Christopher Booker and Graham Greene. 

The book is compiled by David Hillman and Harri Peccinotti, who worked as Art Directors on the magazine. The design and layout of the magazine were as groundbreaking as the content, and borrowed ideas from the psychedelic subculture and underground press of the day. Nova was one of the first magazines to include black models in their photoshoots, and regular photographers for the magazine included Helmut Newton, Guy Bourdin, Terence Donovan, Don McCullin, Bob Richards and Diane Arbus.
