Mr C (new book)

Mr C (not its full title) is due out on 19 July 2012, just in time for the Olympischeiße. It’s an object of rare beauty of course and the first edition is limited to 150 copies.

Please click here for full details but please note that it’s a bit sweary so if that sort of thing is likely to cause you offence then please don’t.

Jeunesse Brulée

My auld friend Nina very kindly asked me if I would do the cover for her forthcoming book Jeunesse Brulée, due out in the Spring through a French publisher. The display type is Bassish and the illustrations are of Nancy SpungenNicoMichèle Breton and Peter Doherty. It’s still very much a work-in-progress because, not least, I don’t really know what Michèle Breton looks like and there aren’t many clues on the unternet. File under Red Crayon Faction.

City of London Anti-Apartheid Group

Those were the days my friend… Stills from the Non-Stop Picket of the South African Embassy, for the release of Nelson Mandela and all political prisoners in Apartheid jails, in Trafalgar Square, London from 1986 to 1990, and a handful from recent years too. Pictures by Deirdre H, Rikke N, Simon M, Richard R, Sian N, Nicki J, Jules C, Gavin B, Mark F, Paul M, Brassett and me and countless others. RIP Norma Kitson, David Kitson, Steve Kitson, Rene Waller, Debbie Hall, Hermina and doubtless more. Davni Chasy performed by Peter Solowka and the Wedding Present, thanks again fellers, always a pleasure.

Atelier Thackray

What’s that sound? Why son, that’s the sound of the men and the women working on the chain-gang. It’s Spring 2012 and I just sort of re-did the site.
