A Few Ether Gatherings... Ghost Signs, The Vault of the Atomic Space Age and Avantgardens: Wanderings #48/52a - A Year In The Country
Ghost Signs UK: These painted, faded signs seem to form part of a semi-forgotten history of places, layers of how we once lived, worked and traded. The Vault Of The Atomic Space Age: there's nothing quite like a good old bit of mid-century modern take on how the future once was. Avantgardens - a gathering of experimentation and exploration in gardens (amongst other places); the shepherd cottages from Slovenia are a thing to behold. They put me in mind of former Soviet Union folk art such as you might find in the Home-Made; Contemporary Russian Folk Artifacts book or the design of Soviet bus stops in Christopher Herwig's book of the same name.
