East End
East End
by John Claridge
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £19.99

5.0 out of 5 stars East End now disappeared....captured over four decades...50's-80's, 3 Jun. 2016
This review is from: East End (Hardcover)
beautifully crafted, this book includes photographs detailing the East End over four decades...which wouldn't in itself mean very much I guess if it weren't for the fact they were taken by a master photographer who himself was born in the East End. It's a reminder of times...some quite recent...now gone...271 pages, every single one recommended to anyone interested in history, the East End or the photography of John Claridge....astonishing value too...


Where Many Shipwrack; Early Poems
Where Many Shipwrack; Early Poems
by Old Stile Press Donne John
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Donne, the art of Robert Macdonald and the book building skills of the Old Stile Press...dynamic combination..., 24 Oct. 2015
I love it is a bit of an understement...a beautiful limited edition book of Donne's early poetry, produced at the Old Stile Press and featuring the art/illustrations of Robert Macdonald. Available in two verisons ...the 'ordinary' (what a minomer this word is!) issued in a small edition of 190 copies and a (very) special edition which features an original watercolour plus three seperate images from the book itself issued loose in a miniscule edition of 26 copies. Check out the website of the Old Stile Press for more details of this and other fabulous works. The Amazon site suggests this and other OSP books are not available, but in my expereince many are, so don't be put off... Google Old Stile Press and check it out for yourselves :)

by Jenny Pery
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £25.00

5.0 out of 5 stars This book reveals many layers and is beautifully illustrated., 7 Sept. 2014
Eyton's work looks effortless, but is actually the product of a massive talent at work. This book reveals many layers and is beautifully illustrated...I particularly liked the elements relating to Brixton ... but then I would...we have a couple, of his Brixton based works :)

5.0 out of 5 stars hockney insight, 19 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
this has been around a while and now reissued in a smaller format...but still a gem...extremely well illustrated and of course the words of Hockney himself...time marches on and he's not an artist that stands still, but an excellent position statement
