Billy Fox in Vintage Swimwear
This is Billy Fox. We know that because someone has written his name on the back. But that is almost all we know. The same person who knew his name, and presumably more about him too, speculates on the back of the photo that this might have been taken during the war. He has come to rest in my collection of photographs of young men in vintage swimwear.
You may have noticed a short hiatus in the posting here of late. This is because I have been up to my eyeballs in the creation of a new catalogue. Of course, if you are on my mailing list you know this already because you have spent the evening, I'm sure, happily scrolling through the 200 items on 36 fully illustrated pages and deciding which lovely things to spend your money on. If you're not on my mailing list, and by now I'm sure you'll be asking yourself why you aren't, you can come back here and find a link to the catalogue tomorrow evening.
Members of the Callum James Books mailing list get first look at all my public catalogues, and there have been 8 of those in 2013 alone, but they also receive notifications every now and again of short lists, some 20-30 items of interest, that are only available to members of the mailing list. So, it's a select band but to be on it, all you have to do is ask. There's an email link at the top right-ish of this page... use it and ask to be on the mailing list. It's not exactly high volume and there's no high pressure sales, it's just a chance to get a first look at the stuff I sell.
