I recently came across a book about the work of Storm Thorgerson and it seems I've been unwittingly collecting his artwork for several years. Throughout the seventies (working as part of Hipgnosis) and continuing into present day, this British graphic designer has created many captivating images. How many can you recognise?

Anyone for Tennis?

After at least 2 years of saying it would be a good idea, Guillaume and I finally managed to summon enough energy to actually get up and go play tennis. Twice in one week actually. After a [wet] false start that took us to the indoor courts at Warwick Uni we decided to wait for a dry day, and took advantage of the very good municipal courts.
Whilst the knowledge of how to play has deserted neither of us, it will be a long journey to rediscover the pinnacle of physical excellence we used to inhabit.
