Watch the Queen of England age through bank notes.

how often does the UK get new money!?

See here - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Banknotes_of_the_pound_sterling#Current_issue 
Generally the Bank of England notes change every 15 years or so.

Loncon3 Schedule

khorazir:

A while ago I was invited by the organisers of the Loncon3 artshow to participate. Since it’s finally a convention that takes place during a time I can actually attend (summer holidays, yay) and it’s in London, I agreed. I’ll be exhibiting Tolkien and Sherlock artwork, and perhaps some Temeraire and Beowulf stuff as well. It’d be great to meet some of you folks in August.
Here’s my schedule, but I’m likely to be around during other times as well, for example for the Tolkien Society Seminar on Thursday.
Gala Art Show Opening and Book Launch
  • Thursday 16:30 - 18:00, Art show (ExCeL)
  • The gala opening of the Art Show is sponsored by Titan Books and features the launch of Jim Burns’ Hyperluminal as well as a joint signing by all of Titan’s attending artists and a chance to meet many of the other artists whose work is on show.
Meet the Artists
  • Friday 12:00 - 13:30, Art show (ExCeL)
  • Visit the Art Show and meet our attending artists - who will be available by their work to talk, explain and answer questions.
Exquisite Corpse
  • Friday 13:30 - 15:00, Flexible Exhibits Space (ExCeL)
  • The successor to “Duelling Easels” as our artists draw - and then take over each other’s pieces to continue the work! Who knows what they’ll end up with….

Art Demonstration - Watercolour

  • Saturday 10:00 - 11:30, Art Demo Space (ExCeL)
  • Professional artist and teacher Anke Eissmann demonstrates how to work in watercolour.
Meet the Artists
  • Saturday 12:00 - 13:30, Art show (ExCeL)
  • Visit the Art Show and meet our attending artists - who will be available by their work to talk, explain and answer questions.

Artists in Residence

  • Saturday 16:30 - 18:00, Artist in Residence (ExCeL)
  • Visit the Art Show to meet our Artists in Residence - talk, buy, see them work.
Costume Sketching
  • Sunday 10:00 - 11:30, Flexible Exhibits Space (ExCeL)
  • Come and watch as some of our artists join the more traditional photographers to capture the Hall and Masquerade Costumes for posterity!

I hope I’ll see you there - I expect I’ll be at the TS day, if nothing else. :-)

Sleeping beauties

Resting, that is what these old books appear to be doing. And they deserve it. The volumes date from the 17th and 18th centuries and have been on these shelves for several hundreds of years. They are part of York Cathedral Library and occupy a packed room (Pic 5) just adjacent to a larger reading room. When I visited the place, last week, I found myself whispering and walking slowly, so as not to wake them. These images transmit, I hope, some of the magic that hangs in the air: the red and green shine of leather bindings mixed with the distinct musky smell of old books.

Pics (my own): York Minster Library, established precisely 600 years ago this year. More about the library here.
