Book - Signs of the Times
Martin Parr
Based on the TV series of the same name, directed by Nick Barker, this is a vintage - and hilarious - look at personal taste in the British home, exploring the extraordinary range of emotions that lie behind our household decor. Parr's photography complements Barker’s survey of contemporary perceptions of good and bad taste. In 1994, the publisher added a dust jacket to the remaining stock of copies, which were bound as a paperback book with 72 pages containing 59 colour photographs.
