No, this is not about our avian friends.

Exhibiting in its title the typical cheeky British humor of the day, it is, instead, a 1967 coffee-table photo/glamour/art/graphic-design book highlighting note-worthy female singers, personalities, actresses, models, debutantes, artists, and celebrities from the exciting and energetic London and UK of the '60s. This book was created by John d Green (photographer) and David Tree (designer), with written contributions by Anthony Haden-Guest.

The humorous cover photo is of Pattie Boyd, well-known British model, author, photographer and past wife to two British guitarist-superstars George Harrison and, later, Eric Clapton.

Noteworthy is the presence of the full dust-jacket; so often missing from available copies. Includes clear protective cellophane sleeve. This book is a must for anyone interested in the "Swinging Sixties" era of London.
