The Last Shall Be First: The Colourful Story of John Lobb

I was walking past John Lobb the other week and I noticed they had shoes displayed on top of copies of a monograph entitled ‘The Last Shall Be First: The Colourful Story of John Lobb’.

I purchased a copy from Amazon, but have yet to start reading it (and as my reading habits go, expect a review in 2015). In the meantime I thought I’d share this image of the back cover which I thought was a clever and unusual introduction to the book.

There’s also a decent review of the book on Permanent Style from 2009 if you can’t hold on till 2015.
