A Child’s Christmas in Croydon
Ambitious Outsiders paperback
Those New Addington Christmases remain with me, inauthentic, unholy and awkward, in the days before we traded up and tried for something a bit fancier.
For years John Grindrod attempted to recreate the modernised Cold War Christmas of his childhood in the 1970s and 80s. These were festivities brought to him by Woolworths, from the silver tinsel tree to the flimsy cards. In this bittersweet recollection of a council estate Christmas long past revisit the highs and lows of a day fuelled by Provident cheques, Babycham and unreachable expectations.
A 32 page pamphlet designed by Richard de Pesando for Ambitious Outsiders press. A5 format featuring 4 full colour spreads based on vintage wrapping paper, and signed.
