Wales Antiques Guide 1987 – 2014

Today I’ve been preparing work on the next edition of the Wales Antiques Guide. Usually this means a fair bit of displacement activity.

Like the bowler before his run-up nothing much happens except for a bit of ball tossing and polishing. Metaphorical of  course.

It is a little different this year because I’ve realised with some shock that next year year will be the 29th I’ve published. So, with that in mind I’ve collated past editions and I’ve photographed them for posterity. And though the graphic design services provided by printers in the late ’80’s and early ’90’s left a lot to be desired they are starting to look collectable.

The Wales Antiques Guide is online too, here and on Facebook, here.

This is the blog of Paul Williams, Ceredigion resident since 1970. I am an English and Philosphy graduate of what was once known as St David's University College, at Lampeter. I played bass in Dyfed's first punk band, and living in Llandewi Brefi, had a grandstand view of Operation Julie. Eventually, after 2 years playing bass in Brighton's 256th punk band, I returned to Wales to deal in books and then antiques. I've trained and worked as a counsellor, I am a photographer, blog and web designer and I publish the annual Wales Antiques Guide. I am married and a father of one. Apart from my family, my interests include books, maps, Nikon, Yashica and Mamiya film cameras, British Culture 1935 - 1965, Poole pottery, Welsh textiles, and Poster art. My favourite movies include anything by Pressburger and Powell favourite music includes Gene Clark, Gram Parsons, and anything form San Francisco 1965-1970. I am a late convert to 'Kraut Rock'.
