Mervyn Peake

We were in Chichester on Friday visiting the Pallant House Gallery to see the Robin and Lucienne Day retrospective. As luck would have it they are also showing a collection of illustrations by Mervyn Peake. Originally brought together for the major exhibition in Switzerland last year at Maison d'Ailleurs it includesTreasure Island, Grimm's Household Tales, Captain Slaughterboard, Rhymes without Reason and six detailed charater studies of characters from Gormenghast.

We were absolutely blown away by the detail in the illustrations. He was truly a master of pen and ink.

These photos really don't do them justice. If you can, I recommend popping along to Chichester to them in the flesh ....... amazing!

April Fools

On the 1st April 1977 The Guardian added a 7 page supplement commemorating the tenth anniversary of the island San Serriffe's independence. Along with the support of themed advertisements from major companies readers were took in by the typographic puns and play on words. With people calling up their travel agents wanting to book a holiday to the island, San Serriffe became on of the most successful and famous hoaxes. Ha,ha!
