Bunty biffs Bataille

I’ve begun working and collating material for my book for the Rereading the Riot Act project/series.

It’s going to involve a paste-up/collage form, and the curator I am working with gave me two books to look at for reference.

After I ploughed through them I felt a small burst of excitement because they reminded me so keenly of some reading material, some thinking before I realized no, it was not George Bataille’s Details, it was the Bunty for Girls Annual, which so absorbed me a child.
