An eclectic mix of book collecting and dealing, gay life, gay sex, science fiction and victorian photographs
Sunday, November 20, 2011
It's been another Sunday afternoon in front of my computer, cataloguing, catching up on emails and so on. Also, I've been leafing through some Edwardian copies of The London Magazine, which is a new one to me. Every month they had a fairy story for children which was, very often, illustrated by Charles Robinson. Usually these were small black line drawings and signed. Then, suddenly, in the one month where the illustrator isn't identified, this full-page riot of black and white is unleashed. Could be Charles Robinson, but isn't signed not attributed.
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.
