William Morris - Useful Beauty in the Home

Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.
- William Morris

Art historian Abigail Harrison-Moore visits the National Trust’s Standen house, one of the most charming examples of Arts and Crafts workmanship in the UK, and explores its surprisingly pioneering spirit – from the use of electric lighting to its role in the Suffragette movement.

The ‘Golden Age’ of British Watchmaking

"The seventeenth and eighteenth centuries are often referred to as the ‘golden age’ of British watchmaking. The 1600s produced a plethora of highly skilled watchmakers, such as Thomas Tompion, George Graham and John Harrison, while the 1700s witnessed the fruits of their labour radicalise timekeeping on a global scale and welcomed another great British horologist to the fold in the form of Thomas Mudge."

Hustling (1975)

"Based on Gail Sheehy's book, 'Hustling' made prostitutes the sympathetic center of a story that presented the issue of sex-for-pay as a social problem with no easy solution. Shot for gritty authenticity on the streets of New York, 'Hustling' questioned who were the true lawbreakers in what is revealed to be a $7-billion-a-year business.

"Lee Remick stars as magazine writer Fran Morrison, a thinly disguised representation of Sheehy herself, who, while attending a public hearing on prostitution in midtown Manhattan, is inspired to write a series of articles on the subject, which she bases on face-to-face interviews with the hookers."

Dziga Vertov & Yelizaveta Svilova - Man with a Movie Camera (1929)

"Roaring Twenties Soviet Union in 1929. Brought to life with AI. Filmed largely in Odessa, Ukraine. Not exactly the image which history has left us of the former USSR.

"For some more affluent women, there was fashion, parties, bobbed hair, makeup and the ubiquitous cloche hat so popular with girls across the globe in the 1920's. The position and roles of women in the USSR, in principle at least, were equal to men under the Soviet Constitution. The reality for the vast majority was very different. Millions ended up in gulags and a totalitarian system remained in place until the late 80's."

The painter in question is Leonora Carrington

"With a mysterious smile on her lips," writes the Chilean film director Alejandro Jodorowsky, “the painter whispered to me, ‘What you just dictated to me is the secret. As each Arcana is a mirror and not a truth in itself, become what you see in it. That tarot is a chameleon.’"

This comes from Jodorowsky’s The Book of Tarot; the painter in question is Leonora Carrington, the British-born, Mexico City–based surrealist famed in life and death as much for her strange, entrancing writings as for her visual art. And this quote appears in another book, Fulgur Press’s The Tarot of Leonora Carrington, which reproduces her newly discovered illustration of the Major Arcana.
