This book advert for Kate Morton's The Distant Hours is mindblowing amazing, but I lack the Blogger skills to add it to my blog, so I am not less amazing. Watch video here!

Winter hankerings

I cannot tell why I wish for this warm woolly blanket so much though it is the height of summer. Perhaps it's the rainbow of little bobbles? The crocheted edging? The tiny bird sitting nearby? Or perhaps it's cos I'm woefully poorly today and want to curl up in comfy place.


Well of course the Penguin Great Ideas series have some of the most inspired covers of all time, but I think this one, for Walter Benjamin's The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Production, is just so very pleasing. See more of their wonderousnesses here

I can't format this properly so it will let me show
