Ivor Brown

I gots an Ivor Brown book, 'I Give You My Word' for £1 today in Leicester Square. Boom. It's beautiful and full of words like ambuscade, cargozoon, inveigle and potwalloper.

A lovely end to a lovely day wandering around the Tate on the last day of the 'Rude Britannia' exhibition. Altogether an ok show; i was particularly fond of an H.M Bateman print on show (The Lost Stamp) and the satirical drawings of the fashions of the day by Philip Dawe et al. By far the best thing was Mike Nelson's Coral Reef exhibition, a beautiful labyrinth of corridors and rooms with unmarked doors reminded me a bit of being in a ship and left me in a curious discovering mood...
