Inspiration

David Bailey was cut from a photograph (Associated Newspapers/ Rex Features) entitled ‘Queen Elizabeth II meets David Bailey at the British Clothing Industry Reception At Buckingham Palace, 2010’.

The picture was taken from a book (David Bailey Exposed, 2013) in the shop bin at work, I think it had been misprinted in some way.

The biscuit is a lip balm thingy. I cut it from ES Magazine (25.8.17). The photograph is by William Bunce.

I hand-stitched Bailey, and his biscuit, to an old ledger made by Moore’s Modern Methods, 19-21 Farringdon Street, London EC4. The company was established in 1909 and is still trading, as Moores Of London.
