The marrying of a selection of early recordings (on two CDs) with a collection of 'found' photographs evokes a lost era of music in this creatively curated book. People posing with their guitars, banjos or violins or sitting by their gramophones are viewed in the nostalgic sepia tones of early studio portraits, postcards and snapshots. The images are interspersed with poems and literary excerpts, and the discs include amateur home recordings from the 1920s and 1930s.
