Silly One

A wonderful and very inspiring past few weeks with my man, which included:

2 nitrate film screenings at the BFI - one technicolour nitrate, The Yearling, (which Dan explained is considered true technicolour film) and one black and white nitrate, Brighton Rock, which really glowed, and has stayed on my mind for a long time. It was a shame that more people didn't turn up to the screenings because this was a rare chance to see actual nitrate stock.

A documentary on Jack Cardiff followed by Powell and Pressburger's The Red Shoes at Riverside Studios in Hammersmith, and a stroll around Hyde Park, all spent with my dear friend Pip Chorley (who's work you can see here).

Original Beatrix Potter drawings from her first book The Tale of Peter Rabbit at the V&A

A thorough collection of Roman Cieslewicz' work at the Royal College of Art...(completely stunning, with not a weak piece in the lot).

A visit to the London Film museum, the White Cube and the BookArtBook shop.

Ozu's first talkie, The Only Son

A lovely day trip to Brighton, chips on the beach and lots of comic book buying (some David B, The Unwritten, and lots of TMNT for Dan)

A holiday in Morthhoe, Devon with lots of walks, rope swings, dips in the sea, jellyfish, jigsaws, tiny travel scrabble games, amusing sheep and cornish ale.
