Firstly I popped into the Robert Fogell Gallery on High St Martin's to seee what was new and found a number of wonderful prints of fens by Carry Akroyd. Here is a link to her website.
Secondly in a nearby antiques place I came across a set of four charming coffee cans designed by Susie Cooper. She has always been my favourite of the three so-called 'Pottery Ladies', but, perhaps, the most over looked. This is a shame. The cans are, I think, post WWII - the period of her work I personally find the most satisfying.
Thirdly browsing the nagazines in a newsagents I found in next months (March) 'World of Interiors' I found an article on St Catherine's Monastery on the Sinai Peninsular. I had to have it, although I had undertaken not to spend anything today.
