Jazz, Old Norse and ‘troll tunes’: the strange, stunning music of Shetland

The Scottish king, James III, had wanted Rhenish florins, but he had to settle for Shetland instead.T...

New Textiles from Timorous Beasties

These beasties may be timorous but their textiles are not. The latest prints from the Glasgow-based studio who brought us the Kaleido Splat lampshades and Seaweed Column fabric are anything but fearful and resigned—the very opposite, in fact. Moire Damask from Timorous Beasties While they acknowledge that both Gerhard Gum and Moire Damask signal in some ways a return to tradition, they just as quickly pivot and undercut this sentiment. Gerhard Gum wallcovering In the Tim...

This discussion will, most probably, be the last in my astronomical series. I wanted to write an essay a...
