You really do zig when others are zagging don't you, David?
I try not to collect. Perhaps because it feels like designers are supposed to. I'm not knocking it though, as it certainly informs the work of some. The inimitable George Hardie – (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Hardie_(artist) – for one. And the imitable (but never bettered) Graham Rawle. Spend your book tokens on 'Woman's World'. (You can hear the scissors snipping), and pore over/pour coffee over 'Speck' in your local lifestyle bookshop/cafe.


Funny you should say that Andrew, because I did notice that I was the oldest blogger in the room at Interesting 2008 (and by a country mile, don't you know). And it got me thinking that I must be zigging when all of my contemporaries are zagging. I wonder where they do it?


That does look lovely David and now I'm kicking myself for being a lazy arse and not contributing. Damn me!


It's OK, we understand Richard: your head's been turned by a trio of chickens.
