John Claridge, At the ’59 Club, 1973 (JPEG courtesy spitalfieldslife.com)
You're going to want to jump on this. Remember John Claridge, the photographer of the East End of London we featured the other day? He's got a new little book out—halfway towards a pamphlet, really, and only 28 pages—of some of the best of his East End pictures.
On the good side, it's only £4, and most of us can spare that...I don't smoke, but I think it's less than a pack of cigarettes, in either the U.S. or the U.K.
On the bad side, there are only 100 numbered copies available...actually no more than 99, considering I just ordered mine. So you'll have to act right quick. Lightning fast. Do not wait. These will not last long.
(You should only buy one if you intend to keep it and take good care of it, though. This is the sort of ephemera that will be rare and driving Claridge collectors crazy in future years. You are its custodian.)
UPDATE 6:58 a.m. Wisconsin time, 12:58 p.m. in London: ...And they're gone.
