Johnny Green, born in 1930, passionately collected hundreds of egg cups throughout his life. The origin of his collecting lies in his childhood.
Bouchet and Mayow compose a heart warming story from Green’s tale and macro shots of these printed treasures of everyday life and pop culture, as fragile as the cracked glazing on the porcelain.
