British Folk Part One - James Pearson-Howes
This arrived today.
In this short book, James begins to document some of the weird, wonderful and frankly quite odd traditions which pervade British culture and society. He has done a great job of capturing the atmosphere and dedication which goes into preserving such bizarre rituals.
The book fits nicely alongside Estelle Hanania’s fantastic work as to a certain extent they share a theme.
I hope James continues to document more and more of these folk rituals. As I look through the book I can’t help but feel how wonderful it would be to see the straw bear being paraded past!
