Some Thoughts on Books.

May 13, 2011


    The problem with bookshops is that nobody in them is the least bit impressed that you are buying a book.

October 2, 2010


Yet another collection of the sign-offs that have eased so many troubled minds.   Goodnight… The last thing intruders will be expecting is a staircase completely smothered in butter. It could save your life. Lullabies are only calming when you know where they’re coming from. Achieving forced perspective effects with tapering hallways will convince an […]
