  1. Looks like an excellent exhibition. It’s only about an hour from me I’ll try and get there. If I do I’ll let you know what it’s like.

    And while you’re there Rob, please have a word with them about their poster. Syntax is the word I have in mind.

    What language is it in? It seems familiar but I can’t place it.

    The show looks good though.

    The text on the poster seems to have been produced by someone who was not a native speaker of English, be it British or American.

  6. Is there an exhibition catalogue or book to go with this that one can order online?
