First Things First (at Christmas): Connect

With Christmas in mind, and perfect for adults and children alike, I picked up this game last week on an expedition in Kent. Trying to find out a little more about the design group Ken Garland and Associates online I was delighted to find this comprehensive account and even more delighted to read their 1963 manifesto (above).


Christmas Reading

The lovely ladies at Gravel and Gold in SF, one of my favourite shop blogs, have been regularly uploading pages from an amazing early 1970s US publication Country♀Women described as a ‘feminist country survival manual and a creative journal’. Inspired, I thought as a little Christmas offering I’d point everyone in the direction of an English version of the ‘good life’ via the website of Craig Sams where past issues of Seed: the Journal of Organic Living are up for perusal. Happy Christmas reading!
