1. What is Six?
“A great project given away free in the CdG shops in the late eighties – only eight issues, all brilliant!”
2. The photography is legendary in Six, isn’t it?
“Yes! Peter Lindbergh, Bruce Weber, Jeurgen Teller…”
3. People seem to appreciate the rare finds – books, magazines – more now than before – why is that?
“There seems to be too much – going into a newsagents – literally, hundreds of ‘style’ magazines. I think there is something about books and magazines that were produced in small numbers – some of them done with very little money but a lot of passion (sounds like me)”
4. What’s the most bizarre request for a book / mag you’ve had?
“Sorry! can’t think of an answer or even make up an amusing one.”
5. Can we have ‘10 books / mags you have to see before you die’
