July reading material

I p[icked up these this week, with Ad Boy being the stand out find, It is a wonderful book with page after page of advertising characters from over the decades, with only a handful familiar to me as it is an American book. This American aesthetic is very attractive to me and I find it nostalgic despite it not being part of my history; perhaps its a conditioned response.

The ephemera book is a series academic work aimed at librarians. I have had a brief skim through but need to spend a bit more time on this one.

A great article about St Albans based glasses shop Retrospecs. The Black brand glasses they stock are really tempting for getting my Micheal Caine steez on.
