OUR MAN EN ROUTE
I made a whirlwind trip through NYC on Saturday to gather materials for an exciting Spy Vibe project (still hush hush). One obligatory stop was the Strand, maybe the best used book shop I've seen. Spy Vibers may remember my coverage of the excellent Fear and Fashion book by the Victoria and Albert Museum found during my last outing. Saturday's search uncovered another gem from V&A about fashion from the Swinging Sixties and the Diana Rigg (Avengers) biography. Train time was spent drooling over numerous Eurospy movie posters on eBay and listening to the Ian Fleming audio story I come back to most often, From a View to a Kill. Never has an assassination on motorcycles been so beautifully written!
