Get hold of "People's Art:Working Class Art from 1750 to the Present Day" by Emmanuel Cooper

Bought it for pennies from Abebooks on the day of your recommendation and it's just arrived now; a lovely old hardback libary copy with the Dewey number still on the spine (A 709. 033 COO) - inside it's stamped City of Sunderland College Learning Centre. Still, it's part of my library now (my mother's a Makem). Flicking through it strikes all the right notes - from intimate pieces of treen to union banners; and Wallis and Lowry are in there too... Many thanks for the heads up!

Check it out, lively...
