A selection from the Bollops family archive; these examples 1987 - 91 or thereabouts
Apologies if this is a bit too recent, or not haunty enough, but re-finding these the other day reminded me that my unhealthy charity shop habit and fascination with books of the sort that get posted here was started by the need to find covers for the compilation tapes that I used to do for my then girlfriend. Titles as well - the contents pages of popular science books were always good for that. "The Moon's Strange Internal Strength", "Seven White Gates" etc.
Did anyone else do this, or were you all happy with a bit of silver pen on the tape itself?
Thought for the day: did compilation tapes play a bigger part in the eclecticisation of taste than previously suspected?
