Major Raven-Hart's Commemorative
Those who enjoyed the Story of the Emperor and Antony by Major Raven-Hart a few days ago, and many of you did if my inbox is anything to go by, will be delighted to know that the incomparable Mark Valentine has produced this fantasy stamp to commemorate the journey of the good Major up the Irrawaddy. At the same time Mark has introduced me to the wonderful world of fantasy stamps, artistart stamps and other niche philately (I think I may be having a go myself at some point!)
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.
