Somans: Soman-Wherry and the Lord Mayor's Parade, Norwich - 3rd May 1988

One of Nosher's tasks whilst on placement year is the crucial job of decorating Soman-Wherry Press's entry into the Lord Mayor's Procession, held in Norwich. This mostly involves using up a pallet-load of bulb catalogues (as in the planting flower variety) to stick on the sides of a couple of windmills (the theme being "Holland"). Nosher also designed a teeshirt, which was printed by former housemate Barney's company on Ber Street.
