An eclectic mix of book collecting and dealing, gay life, gay sex, science fiction and victorian photographs

Those with an interest in typography, and those with an interest in fantasy architecture (both of which I know frequent this blog from time to time) should give a few moments of their lives to watch this video of alphabet architecture by early 19th century Italian theatre designed and artist, Antonio Basoli. The youtuber Distantmirrors who created and posted this video has done a good job providing more information about Basoli on the original Youtube page. It looks to me like the rest of their videos might also be worth exploring.
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.
