  • Overview of all celebs having visited Amsterdam during the 1960s, '70s, and '80s
  • Including the 'bed-in' protest action by John Lennon and Yoko Ono
  • Presents never-before published photos from the Amsterdam-based press agency Sabel & Daniëls

In the 60s and 70s, Amsterdam was the epicentre of new cultural development and a magnet for national and international celebrities. Dutch photojournalists Hans Sabel and Henk Daniëls were on site to capture all events and advancements. 30 years of photojournalism has resulted in an archive of around 150,000 negatives.

In cooperation with the heirs of the archive a selection of images has been brought together in this book. It offers many previously unpublished images, from Jacques Brel, Martin Luther King, John Lennon, Charles Aznavour, Elizabeth Taylor and Dutch celebrities like Johan Cruyff, princess Beatrix and prince Bernhard to Willeke Alberti. Starring Amsterdam is a unique photographic document from Amsterdam at a time when the city is alive and buzzing like never before.

With a foreword by James Worthy and text by Joost Bastmeijer.

Sabel & Daniëls is one of the most important press agencies in Holland.
