Found Postcard. Can anyone decipher the scrawl? All I can make out is “Please don’t let the…..Our girl is mad”. Lovely Typography on the front is credited Copyright RG Wells 1907



Finally unveiled, the 10 illustrations and new cover I produced for Oliver Sacks – The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat. A beautifully made boxed Limited Edition reprint from the Folio Society.  It’s hot off the press and there are only 4000. Available from The Folio Society.

My old website has alas been retired from service but lovingly rebuilt by the talented Danielle Mullis. Launched today, on it’s maiden worldwide voyage it has four decks and a tidy little shop. God bless all who sail in her. Where’s the Champagne…


Street Sounds

Street Sounds – Electro 4. 1984. I bought this when I was about 13. A big influence visually and musically. Everything was exciting about these LP’s, it was the whole package, the music, the design, the fact that they were mixed and a series to collect. It looked and sounded so fresh & different. I wasn’t exactly sure what ‘Aural’ Sex was though. Sleeve designs by Red Ranch for Carvers.

tiny pencil4 Comments

A friend, a school teacher saved this for me after a 6 year old pupil handed it in and asked  for a new one. What I love is that all the information about this pencil is still on here. It’s a Staedtler, a HB and the owner was in the green group.
