Ain’t nothing like vintage American photos. I just started taking photo classes. Of course, I’m not great yet, but I’m going to toot my horn and say some of my work is very good. I upload them to my photoblog, and let history be the judge :-)
While we’re on topic of vintage photos… The next Phillips Auctions photography sale is on exhibit–All the BIG NAMES… I was just there, and I highly recommend a visit…the corner of 57th & Park Ave until April 2nd.
If you have any interest in vintage postcards, check out the other five books in this series, published by Bodleian Library Publishing in Oxford, England. Just search for books by Tom Phillips. This eminent and charming British artist has an amazing collection of 50,000 picture postcards. I wrote the foreword for MENSWEAR, but I also love the ones on WEDDINGS, BICYCLES, WOMEN & HATS, READERS and FANTASY TRAVEL. Tom has promised me that he has plenty more ideas to develop yet.
