To mark the end of INSP’s 25th anniversary year, we have been asking vendors across the street paper network to write a letter to their 25-year-old self. Kupfermuckn’s Bertl has lived a storied life at sea and around the world. Now 69, he sells the street paper at a weekly market in Linz.

INSP Vendor Playlist: Georg Nacthmann (Kupfermuckn, Wels, Austria)

Kupfermuckn’s ‘George the Prince of Wels’ chose a song that chimes well with his attitude to daily life.
