A profile and reappraisal of the illustrator’s works.
Previously published on East of the M60 as On Reflection: The Collected Visual Works of John Tribe on the 10 June 2014.
Though not one of East of the M60’s most read pieces, the original piece attracted the attention John Tribe himself! He was ‘flattered and speechless’ to say the least, and needless to say, I was amazed too. Amazed in the same sense how Joe Royle described 1989-90 as his ‘pinch-me’ season with the Latics going to Wembley.
Since then, I have had continued contact with Mr. Tribe who has kindly furnished me with further details, corrections and clarifications. Hence the slight change to the title.
Many thanks to John, not only for the research notes, but also for the two lovely architectural books I received. One of which had been on my Christmas or birthday present list for the last five years.
