He’s arguably the most iconic photographer of his post-punk generation, though the only people who’d argue with that are probably other photographers of his generation.

"Tell us about your favourite photographic commissions please.

Mark Taylor announced limited edition box set of Smiths Indeed fanzines

The legendary fanzine Smiths Indeed celebrates the 35th anniversary of issue one with a special limited edition box set of high quality reprints and a limited edition poster.

Produced by editor Mark Taylor with little more than a manual typewriter, Letraset and glue, the 12 issues of Smiths Indeed in 1986-1988 became collectors’ items and often fetch high prices online.

Mark has decided to release the special box set, which will be in a special box and shrink-wrapped with a hand-numbered postcard, to mark the 35th anniversary.

The poster will be released next week and will also be hand numbered and signed by Mark.

The box set will follow in July, with pre-orders announced shortly. Demand is expected to be high so you’ll have to be quick.
