What looks like a ‘must have’ book is released later this year. But you can already pre-order The Vintage Fashion Bible: The style guide to vintage looks 1920s -1990s by Wayne Hemingway and Gerardine Hemingway.
If you are looking for a 1930s vibe for a room (or indeed, a house), you might want to check out this Deco Diamond wallpaper by Hemingway for Graham & Brown.
If you are working on creating a room in a 1950s, or indeed, early 1960 style, you might want to take a closer look at this rather stylish Grid by Hemingway wallpaper at Graham & Brown.
There are 21 different designs to select from ranging across styles and decades (with a small overlap with the designs offered by the Surface View collection we featured a while back). Each design is available as a print or on canvas and as a variety of sizes.
Prices start at £25 for a 30cm x 40cm fine art print.

Some new takes on the classic twentieth-century travel poster as seven contemporary artists were asked to design a seaside poster to be auctioned off for charity.
Several Retro To Go favourites were among the artists asked to depict their favourite resort: Barbara Hulanicki extols the virtues of Brighton, Angie Lewin goes for Salthouse in Norfolk while Wayne and Geraldine Hemingway promote the merits of Boscombe, as pictured above. Although the style of 1930s British travel posters were an obvious starting point, each artist has tackled the brief in their own distinctive way.
The auction started this morning (Thursday) on Ebay and concludes on the 16 May at 9pm. All proceeds raised go to Marine Conservation Society.
