Someone sent me a link to this wonderful blog recently, it's a really great resource of illustrated book covers from all over the place.  I've been so busy lately with my new shop so haven't had nearly enough time to fully explore all the fantastic imagery and information he has on there yet, but it's top of my list for when things quieten down or when i get a day off.  Here are some vintage Irish and Portugese covers that caught my eye this week.

There's an art piece I've always wanted to visit, and it's in the middle of nowhere in Quemado,  New Mexico, south of Albuquerque.

Alice who is a kind of a niece of mine recently gave me a thank you card of one of John Stezakers collages.  I have it on my pinboard in my new Oxo Tower workspace (come visit!).  I find it mesmerising and keep looking at it.
