Having always had a deep and varied interest in all things creative – film, music, art and design – I hope to be posting articles on these subjects on a weekly basis (allowing for the occasional holiday of course!).

I spent my youth reading Edgar Allan Poe (from an old leather bound book with the amazing Harry Clarke illustrations) and H.G. Wells (among many others) and obsessively watching old movies. I also loved exploring a wide range of music, including Classical, Jazz, Psychedelia and Prog. (and most of this happened before the internet became ubiquitous!). 

I then studied Design at university, with some of my work being exhibited in London and at the International Furniture Fair in Milan.  With my general interest in history I decided that my dissertation would be on Idealism in Design. I looked in depth at the Arts and Crafts Movement, Modernism and Pop Design of the 1960’s.

My posts will include (but not exclusively!) my mad passion for obscure music and forgotten films, art, design, books and anything else that takes my fancy.

  1. Dear Prince Cavallo,

    I’m emailing from a charity called Booktrust – we teach people from all walks of life about the love of reading – and I’m currently putting together a ‘History of Booktrust’ page. We were originally formed by Hugh Walpole in 1921 and i wanted to know if i could use the picture on this page: https://princecavallo.wordpress.com/2013/09/30/the-tarn-by-hugh-walpole/ – do you have copyright of this image?


    James –

  2. Judging by your interview on E-Author Resources, you and I have similar interests in literature. I too read E.A. Poe at a young age and was fascinated by his characters and the situations he created for them. Thank you for your interest in my blog and good luck with your first (and any subsequent) books!
