I intended to do some exploring last weekend; however, a viral infection of my upper respiratory tract meant that my time in deepest darkest Sherwood Forest (and its environs) was somewhat short-lived. I did manage to make it into Nottingham to shuffle around in the rain for a few hours, where I picked up some very handsome cards by Paul Farrell from his Brutal is Beautiful series. 

In further brutalist news, if you remain unconvinced by Paul’s assertion that the brutal can indeed be beautiful, then I should point you in the direction of John Grindrod’s latest book How To Love Brutalism. It’s an impossibly good looking publication with some fine illustrations from The Brutal Artist, and it comes highly recommended to you regardless of how much or how little you love all things concrete.
