An eclectic mix of book collecting and dealing, gay life, gay sex, science fiction and victorian photographs
Sunday, November 16, 2008
These are just a few strays I found in the miscellaneous folder on my hard drive and I thought I'd share. The top three by Augustus John (the second being a portrait sketch of Reresby Sitwell) and the bottom two by Donald Friend.
I am a bookcollector, bookdealer, publisher and writer living in Portsmouth on the South Coast of the UK.
This blog is my personal space for the recording of my numerous interests including science-fiction, victorian and vintage photography, gay literature, book design, typography, homoerotic artwork, the Amazon river, the books of Frederick Rolfe (Baron Corvo), Forrest Reid, sundry gay Victorian and Edwardian characters, Slash Fiction, Samuel R Delany, Vintage swimwear, Willard Price, Venice, and so on...
Alongside all of that you also get a personal journal of life and memoir and the self-therapy you have come to know and love from bloggers.
