About

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 and H.G. Wells (among many others) and obsessively watching old movies and listening to Prog. rock.  I then studied Design at university, with some of my work being exhibited in London and Milan.  With my historical interest I looked into modernism’s varied attempts at Idealism in Design for my dissertation.

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.

By the way, if you would like me to write about something for payment (or use any of my photographs) I would be very interested to hear from you…!

I also have a little shop on Etsy which sells some of the things I make plus some retro/vintage pieces – please do have a browse around.  You’ll find it here:-

The Wooden Thread

Here’s the Facebook page for the shop – please ‘Like’ it – if you do, of course 🙂   :-

  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?

    Thanks,

    James –

    • Hello James, thanks for your message – that sounds like a really good charity, I’m surprised I haven’t heard of it before! I do not own the copyright of the image, I found it through Google Images when I wrote the article. I’m not sure how you’d find out who owned the copyright, but good luck in your search.

      Best wishes,
      Prince Cavallo.
