Greg Foley and Andrew Luecke capture the essence of coolness, from beatniks to club kids, in this must-have monograph.

How do we determine what's cool? It's a question that's evolved through the decades, in step with--and because of--the fashion, music and media of passing eras.

Working with writer and style guru Andrew Luecke, author-illustrator Greg Foley unpacks this phenomenon and spills it onto the pages of Cool, a monograph that, through Foley's watercolors, captures trends and fashion movements across a century. From greasers and beatniks to club kids and riot grrrls, the art sets the scene, no matter the scene. And music takes things further.

Complementing Cool is a wealth of streamable playlists with hundreds of songs. A collaboration with Apple Music, the lists have been curated by influencers like Michael Stipe, Kelis and Fischerspooner--just a few of the cool kids who've defined these iconic subcultures.

Cool is available May 9 from Rizzoli.
