Music, art and performance in action at the Royal College
What is it about the last Thursday in November in London, asks John L. Walters? There were at least half a dozen events competing for our attention: Sanky doing a D&AD lecture; the launch of the AR’s Emerging Architecture at RIBA; Jost Hochuli at St Bride; the ‘Deface Value’ view at Mutate Britain; and so on . . . The one I opted for was a specially commissioned presentation of live audio-visual work at the Upper Gulbenkian Gallery at the Royal College of Art.

Memoir of a great Dutch booksellerby Chris Vermaas
Frank Nijhof was a neighbour, and one of my favourite booksellers. I lived around the corner of the very fine bookstore Nijhof & Lee that Frank started with his partner Warren: I knew the good man well. Frank got sick a year ago with a cancer that could not be cured: it was really bad. You know, you start to understand the value of a person when he or she is not around anymore.
