My public (free) series post for this week now live on my patreon page. Moorish Revival this time. Various auction houses, a few to find on ebay one having come from Target. So a nice mix. Link below.

Five images, not just this one.

Should you be interested in supporting my work and can, please check out what is available at the three subscription levels which start at $5. USD/month. I mean they pay me in US dollars. They are international and accept donations in every currency imaginable as far as I know.

Check out my books on Follow me here, on Twitter, Facebook, pinterest or patreon for more from the place where art and history collide. Even I don’t know where I’m going next.
