Travel Scrap Book

A few years ago, I started keeping scraps and pasting them in a book when I went somewhere interesting. There's a lot of mucking around when you travel, and I prefer doing this than reading when I'm away. It's a good way of keeping all those museum tickets, beer labels, and other oddments that seem to end up in my pockets!
Here's the first few pages of my recent one

Hatch Show Print

I've been on my holidays! Just back from a trip from New Orleans to Nashville, stopping off at Lafayette, Clarksdale and Memphis on the way.
The Hatch Show Print shop in Nashville has been making show posters since 1879, there's more info here: 
Many of their posters were made for The Grand Ole Opry, just round the corner.

This place was a real gem- I got very excited to see the staff setting type while we browsed around the shop- and what a shop! I spent a small fortune. Here's some more pictures.

Hardly a day goes by when I don't have a look at this blog, and today I'm on it! Very exciting!
