Please, please, please blog your impressions! I would love to see it and will not get the chance. Let me know what it was like?

purpletigron has reminded me that I have delurked rather abruptly without introducing myself first. Hi! I think we met in the flesh at the 2001 (?) Foundations conference in Liverpool. I teach in University College Cork in Ireland but have rather vanished off the SF radar lately due to motherhood and the consequent erosion of time for research and the like. However, back in the day I used to be a medieval/Renaissance specialist with an emphasis on costume imagery - hence the obsession with Holbein bless him.

Holbein Exhibit at the Tate
Thanks to you and purpletigron for this. Hi! Nice to (re)meet you. Didn't make it to the Holbein this time - you will no doubt sympathise with a parent abandoning a proposed 4-hour expedition in the face of 6-year old refusal to consider same. I hope to try again sometime when she is being less balky...

Oh indeed! To be fair I probably would have hated Holbein when I was six. Try taking her to the 50foot slides in the Tate Modern afterwards as a bribe. i saw those on Newsnight last night and have rarely wished so sincerely for an air-ticket to London.

Re: Holbein Exhibit at the Tate
The 50 foot slides are already on the agenda, date tba. Though they'll only let her slide down the little one...
