I get lots of requests to put links on this blog. And 99% them fall on deaf ears. Especially the ones that describe my blog as being 'awesome' - that's an instant giveaway that whoever's emailing hasn't read a single word. So if you're thinking of asking me to feature something on here and you're going to try flattery by telling me that the blog is awesome, then don't bother. Except, of course, you wouldn't be reading this, would you?But Ian Blackwell's not like that at all. He sent me a very nice email this morning (and I hope he won't mind me repeating it here):
I came across your blog entry for the Billy Liar book cover this morning. Tony is a friend of mine and I have been checking out some things for him on the internet.
I thought that you may be interested to know that he is having a retrospective exhibition here in Stroud Gloucestershire. It is a beautiful and interesting exhibition and I am helping him try to drum up interest from further afield than the surrounding area.
You can check the details at: www.museuminthepark.org.uk
Please get in touch if you want any other information.
Congratulations on your blog, very insightful and amusing. not always the case with blogs.
Ian, I'm very happy to help spread the word.
And the rest of you: this exhibition looks to be absolutely ace (or at least the four of diamonds). You should get yourself down to Gloucestershire before the end of the month.
