There’s an interesting new blog in support of Paul Gorman’s book, Reasons to be Cheerful: The Life and Work of Barney Bubbles, featuring expanded and adapted material from the book as well as new and previously unpublished information and images about the designer.

A little about Barney Bubbles, if you’re unfamiliar: Barney was responsible for posters for The Rolling Stones, light shows for Pink Floyd, 150+ record sleeves for the likes of Hawkwind, Elvis Costello, Ian Dury, Billy Bragg and Depeche Mode, and pioneering promo videos, stage sets, post-modern furniture and paintings as well as a host of book and magazine designs.

Book available here.
