Great thread.

Well no surprise with my first offering. Original first press Rough Trade distributed copy of Gangsters. This first pressing came in a plain sleeve hand stamped by band members Terry Hall & Horace Panter.

@JDelage I few years ago i stumbled across a program while flicking through the channels late at night, it was called 'Forged in Fire' i watched a couple, it was on one of those 'bearded men channels' they got a few black smiths, give them a forge, a press and wot-not, some random chunks of scrap metal and a selection of raw materials for the handels and they forge a knife... the judges then test them out. It was nuts but quite watchable :)

A screenprinting friend of mine has a sideline in acid etching, it's pretty much the same process on a smaller scale, he gets some lovely knives in to etch often made from damascus, he etches scenes into the blade but i get the feeling that as beautifully crafted as they are, they're really just ornaments, i bet nobody ever uses them.

Ive bought a few bits n'bobs from Ray Mears bushcraft site over the years, i use a plain old Morakniv for camping but he used to sell (maybe still does) a very plain looking bushcraft knife, hand made in the UK by Emberleaf Workshops, the blade was tool steel, handle was black, it didn't look remarkable in any way so i assume it was made to be used...but it was nearly £500 and the waiting list runs at around 4yrs.. what the flip!

1. Trellick Tower silkscreen print from Gerry Buxton, a London-based artist. I bought this for Mrs F as she’s a West London girl and grew up close to it.

2. Beatles prints from 1968 to promote the release of Yellow Submarine in the US. I bought these for Mrs F as she loves the Beatles whereas I’m indifferent at best but like the colours. We never managed to acquire Paul unfortunately.

Todays offering.. Phlegm's Luxuria

fullsizeoutput_2b1a

It's Phlegm's interpretation of Pieter Bruegel's Luxuria...my sis in law bought it for me from KBR in Belgium, they were running a celebration of Bruegel's work at the time.

1679 Bruegel Luxuria print

I only buy artwork from Sheffield based artists, the art world is vast and even more tempting but with limited wall space and even more limited funds i call those my parameters plus it's a creative city so it churns out a more than enough to keep me happy.

Original Bakerloo line map from an Underground train (the glass is very reflective) and Galadriel cushion stolen from one of The Hobbit premieres (can’t remember which, there’s Bilbo, Legolas and one other knocking around the house somewhere too).

My nephew thinks that style actually called middle-aged not mid-century ... uncannily accurate in a muddled sort of way

I love that Beigal Bake (i'll not say owt about the spelling :biggrin:) is that a print or a photo or what?

It’s a photo Neal and the spelling is spot on (mine not yours :laugh2:, pronounced buy-gall, none of this bagel nonsense), in the dark hallway by the stairs so I didn’t get a great picture. I also meant to include this picture from my son’s room - Smoothsailor’s great post reminded me.
