John Simons – A Modernist


It’s been on the cards a while. It’s stumbled a couple of times but it now looks like the good folk at Mono Media Films will be producing the John Simons documentary.

From the trailer alone it looks superb. Meanwhile here’s what the JS facebook page has to say about it:

A film on John’s life and career was started a year or so back, but that hit the buffers for one reason or another.

So, we’re delighted that Mono Media films have now picked up the option and they will be making a documentary called ‘John Simons – A Modernist’ which should be completed in mid 2017.

They are looking for any long time customers to dig deep in their personal archives to see if they have any photos of any of our shops over the years, or any of the staff, any of the old sale flyers, or our old adverts. Basically, any old ephemera that can be used in the film.

If you have something that might be of interest, please contact them directly at

Anything used in the film, will earn the owner a nice credit in the titles.

Please feel free to share this message and the trailer below to those of a like mind.
