My Taste In…

An attempt to catalogue my favourites, so when I’m asked what my favourite anything is, I can answer. I intend this to be my curated favourites, the ones which have endured; if you wanted to get an idea of who I am, what I love, and what’s important to me via the media I surround myself with, I’d start with what’s below.

This is an evolving document I intend to update regularly (I can never think of everything all at once!). Last updated on 2023-04-24
