Finally got round to reading Cassandra Darke by Posy Simmonds. It’s great, a graphic novel with the sort of heroine you don’t often see and a crime plot line with just the right amount of drama / pulp. And excellent illustration, of course!
Joanne Burke makes beautiful jewels in bronze. Her rings are particularly lovely.
It’s like realizing that there’s a garden when you’d only been shown one rose.
