“In the mid-1980s I started collecting books with John Hinde’s photographs in them. The Small Canteen: How to Plan and Operate Modern Meal Service was the most elusive – it’s not under his name, but published under the auspices of the Empire Tea Bureau in 1947. I like pictures of food and the pastel colours, but what is great about this and his other work is that while the photographs were presumably commercial assignments, done from his London studio, he did them very well.”. Martin Parr

Scarce and collectable book with a dust jacket by Diana Wilbraham who designed many patterned papers for the Curwen Press.
