An eclectic mix of book collecting and dealing, gay life, gay sex, science fiction and victorian photographs
Thursday, November 17, 2011
From a box of old photographs, most likely taken in Sierra Leone in the 1920s I thought this photo was quite remarkable for the silent narratives that could be woven into it. Plus, what's not to like about a family so inordinately proud of their palm nuts that they want to show them to the camera!
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.
