Postwar murals again

logo2

A lot of positive things have happened around the topic of postwar murals since I first began looking at them in the 1990s. Listings, conferences and books, all generate interest in an area that could do with even more research into the lesser-known artists of the time, especially those using ceramics and other non-paint materials. So this is just a reminder that my book, A Field Guide to Postwar Murals (Blue House Books, 2008) is still available through the blurb website, and best of all the ebook version (readable on ipads) is still under £2. There’s a 15-page preview on the blurb website.

Page layouts arrive!

Lava Beer

I feel I should be using twitter for this, but since I don’t have an account, the blog will have to do. The first page layouts for the new breweries book have just arrived! They look wonderful and it is tremendous to at last see the text and images all together on the page. More at the Built for Brewing blog. The pic is of Lava beer, a smoked Imperial stout, from the Olvisholt Brugghus in southwest Iceland. So nothing to do with the book, but very suitable for celebrations at 9.4%! Very drinkable, as I remember.
