So, after a bit of a break from the Things review we are back with a bang. The most incredible amount of bits and pieces have come our way over the Christmas, present-giving season, so I’ve decided to feature more than usual with a little line about each. Normal service will resume from next week.
Crows / Gravity by Mårten Lange / Kalle Sanner. Published by Farewell Books
Books put out by Farewell books never, ever disappoint. Here are two more that keep up the tradition.
Publication Published by Nick Turpin
An incredibly handsome box by street photographer Nick Turpin including a little magazine “for street photographers, by street photographers” and a series of lovely cards. Hugely recommended and humblingly witty.
