This week’s stamp of the week comes straight from the Airwaves festival in Iceland from regular reader (come contributor) James Schadla-Hall. Never had a stamp from Iceland before so am week made up about this! Cheers James!
Found these in my copy of Graeme Gibson’s ‘The Bedtime Book of Birds’ – I was using them as a bookmark. Switzerland makes me think of ‘Tender is the night’ by F.Scott Fitzgerald. There’s a wonderful description in that book of Dick and Nicole listening to music on a portable gramophone which I ought to dig out at some point.
Another stamp from regular reader James Schadla-Hall, this time on a postcard from Northumberland. I remember going to Alnwick for my A-level geography field trip and carry many memories of the visit. From hanging around the bookies in Alnwick to following the Aln from source to sea. it was also the first time I’d seen massive heavy industrial areas which came as quite a shock.
