Not every day you bump into one of your all time heroes. Popped into Magma book shop to pick up my signed copy of Alec Soths’ famous book ‘Sleeping by the Mississippi’, only to find out that the man himself was there and had also pick up a copy, earlier, of our PEEL book. Over the moon is an understatement.
