Hey All, If you spend any time in my classroom and any time at all looking at the walls (instead of paying attention to me which I’m sure never happens) you’ll have noticed some new additions to the eclectic collection of literary art. Brushing shoulders with classic…
What to do if you have a drawer full of those plastic bread tag things.
So 70’s. Now repurposed as soy and beeswax candles. Two sets of 6 for Crawl this year.
Had some fun with this lino cut. Classic Strathcona rowhouse. “Limited edition” of 20 (ran out of ink).
Things were getting a little funky at Penguin in 1971-2.
Two shillings and sixpence would have bought you this back in 1958.
The odd one out. Not a Penguin, but couldn’t resist the asymmetrical purple cover. Had another in this series last year (Sheridan’s The Rivals) with an orange cover.
This volume survived the Second World War! Over 70 years old and now preserved for ever (hopefully). For those of you who think that modern advertising is the scourge of humanity, this book has advertisements printed INSIDE THE BOOK!!! But they are for life’s essentials like razors and cigarettes, so obviously that’s ok.
