Spot the odd one out [May. 30th, 2014|09:19 pm]

A foodie tour of the Alentejo - where to stay, where to eat, which wineries to visit...

Rent a 'saltbox' house in Newfoundland - or just enjoy the pretty slideshow

Anarchy & Beauty: William Morris And His Legacy, 1860-1960, at the National Portrait Gallery (16 October to 11 January): though the NPG, for reasons of its own, seems to have given the story to the Guardian before adding it to its own website. Who knew that Edward Carpenter's sandals were kept in the Sheffield archives? Or that Eric Gill had carved an erotic Adam and Eve garden roller?

This last is of course the anomaly: the exhibition will still be running when I next visit London (at Christmas, if not before), and I'm reasonably likely to go and see it - unless I forget!

It's a place I'd dearly love to visit - but I suspect that those photos are exceptional!

Having done the search for the garden roller, I think poor Adam and Eve look more tortured than erotic.

Which, given what we know of Gill's tastes...

Deeply uncomfortable at best. I think he's just felt something in his back go twang!
