1. I’m at the Spring Gardening Show in Malvern next week, from Thurs to Sat. Designing bookplates for it. (Email me for bespoke commissions!)
    And recently discovered this delightful 21st-century instrument the hang, or hang drum. Makes a lovely sound even when you just bang it (which you aren’t supposed to do). Designed 11 years ago in Switzerland: two carefully tuned steel dishes connected via something called gas nitriding process.
    Ironically, Daniel Waples made some very pleasant music with it at a PV for depressingly dystopian (though elegant) anti-technology drawings.
