one of my favorite vintage postcards

"controversial hill figure"

this is certainly worth the drive if you're anywhere in this part of the world [dorset county, england]. A little folklore... For hundreds of years it was local custom to erect a maypole upon the earthwork about which childless couples would dance to promote fertility, and even today childless couples are known to visit the site in order to copulate in the hope that they might conceive a child.

Jubilee Pool in Penzance, Cornwall. This lido opened in 1935 and is the largest seawater tidal swimming pool still in use in the UK. The pool really is triangular and the water was chilly.

GO-GO-GO SEE! KIOSK: Modes of Multiplication

KIOSK: Modes of Multiplication is a nomadic exhibition of artist books, catalogs, periodicals, video and audio projects that has been continually growing as it has traveled over the past seven years. It currently comprises approximately 6,000 titles from roughly 400 independent publishers from around the world. The project provides a rich overview of activities within the rapidly expanding field of independent publishing activities from the past ten years. Consequently, it offers a broad perspective on the various models of dissemination and distribution of artistic ways of working in printed media and an idea of the diverse strategies, motivations and programs of the participating publishers’ projects.

KIOSK was initiated by Christoph Keller.
