You know that book I told you is the Christmas present you have to buy this year – Portobello Eye – well it will be on sale on the Portobello Market next Friday 7th November near Gail’s. Manned by the charming authors, Jessica Zambeletti, Caroline Gladstone and Jordan Dean, who will most likely sign the book if you ask nicely. Just in case you have no idea what I am talking about read this: Portobello Eye is a 64 page book with beautiful black and white photos illustrating 23 of the great characters you find up and around the Portobello Market. Eight questions were posed to all of the participants and their answers sit beside the portraits. Compiled by local portrait artist Jessica Zambelletti, local designer Caroline Gladstone and actor Jordan Dean, they have shot these personalities standing against the same brick wall (also near Gail’s) as a way of achieving continuity and making the locals the complete focus of the picture. Buy the book from the website portobelloeye, through Lutyens & Rubinstein, Rough Trade, Pedlars General Store or The Cross on or after 4th November. A bargain at £14.99.
