news from nowhere
William Morris published News from Nowhere in 1890 as a vision of an ideal twenty-first century. From the actual twenty-first century, here is a book of echoes and questions. Both sympathetic and contrary signals run between images and words. Is every romantic the last?

dreaming in Bandon
For several days we wandered in and out of shops and offices in Bandon, County Cork, asking people we met if they would tell us a dream they'd had lately, or could remember from the past. It is a curious and intimate question. Responses were often cautious, excuses frequent. But, once engaged, dreams flowed, rising and falling like a pulse of the town, unseen, unknown, till now.
