Muirhead Bone

Went to see the Muirhead Bone exhibition at the Fleming Collection in Mayfair. Bone was one of the best architectural engravers of the first half of the last century, specialising in summing up the scale of massive engineering projects like this one of the great gantry at Charing Cross station. He also served as an official war artist in both wars. It's a terrific exhibition if you're in the area.

    May I ask, Mr. H, what is this 'True Stories Told Live' business I've noticed? Is it a replacement blog.

  2. True Stories Told Live is a modest little project I'm involved with. Further details as we have them.
