While researching Seamus Heaney for a series of illustrations I was doing I asked a friend of his if he could give me some small bits of information I could use in an amusing but not insulting way.
I found out he was a big fan of black shirts.
I then asked his friend, “What might Seamus read in his spare time?” Expecting the answer to be oh, Plato or Yeats or some such.
“The Ben Sherman Catalogue” came the reply.
