During his time as head of Bromley Technical High School art department in the 1960s, Owen Frampton not only taught design luminaries such as Brian Grimwood and Aziz Cami, but also music legend David Bowie.
Here, we publish an extract from the draft copy of Owen Frampton’s book Our Way: the Autobiography of a Teacher of Art & Design (The Frampton Papers), written in the mid 1970s, in which he reminisces about teaching Bowie and Grimwood. It was hoped Grimwood would be designing the book cover, but the book is yet to be published.
