Not all of it Mod relevant perhaps, but certainly of interest to some round these parts...

Would love a photobook purely of knitwear from those 50s / 60s communities, some of the pics are incredible

Stunning pics! Now it's clear where the inspiration for the latest LVC range came from.

The book could be worthy, has someone read it?

If it's vintage knitwear that floats your boat, I believe Scott at Style & Classics is currently in the process of producing one.

Thanks for the heads-up, I'll keep an eye of it. The downside is that a book like that'll just whet our appetite!

It ain't got any pictures in it but Sam Shelvon's The Lonely Londoners is a first hand account of Windrush & is a very worthwhile read.
And will you shorten the sleeves, love? I'm not a gorilla.
