Alan Fletcher on decorating

“[Robert] Brownjohn had a nice wall in his flat, crap he’d picked off the streets and arranged to make the alphabet. He was very pleased when he found an ‘H’ or whatever. And he had a milk crate that he used as a magazine rack, rolling up the magazines and shoving them in. He was very pleased with it. That’s part of our generation, making do with what’s around, because you couldn’t find anything.”
