Back to Oxfam and bought a couple of photography books by Patrick Lichfield and Robert Jowitt. Also the Vera Lynn record from yesterday. The type’s great, floating in the image space. Really doesn’t follow today’s design convention. Walden’s full of charity shops. They’re full of reference and I use them a lot. I like taking something old and something current, mixing them up with other influences to make something new and intriguing (hopefully) but with something familiar in the result. Shared childhood memories, cultural touchstones sort of thing. Browsing photographer’s websites… Matt Jones, Alice Hawkins (great), Simon Emmett.
