  1. Matt Mullican, damn. There's a name I haven't seen cited in a forever. So long, in fact that I myself had all but forgotten about him. Thanks for the heads-up/reminder.

    1. thanks greyhoos. i'm lucky, there's a huge, actually gigantic mullican mural in the lobby of the college library here, so i get to see it nearly every day.

  2. Wow, they're great! Had a look at the Amazon link and you get to see a good few more from inside the book which is ace but it's those collage pics, Fred Payne Clatworthy and B.Anthony Stewart, I searched some more of their photography, really wonderful stuff - the colours in those photos are like the best memories, really stunning. Thanks for share Ben.
