This is a slightly off-piste post: partly, I cannot lie, it is a way of apologising to readers for the shocking lack of other posts recently! 'PLATE' is not dead and there are items on the way, but, in the meantime, I'm just posting a link to layouts from issue 2 of The Book, a free culture magazine for London founded and published by my friend Kohinoor Sahota. The magazine is bi-monthly (this issue is for Dec/ Jan) and features reviews of forthcoming events and releases in film, theatre, technology, art and more, alongside regular features, interviews and 'issue' pieces. If you're reading this in England, think of it as Time Out-slash-the culture section from your favourite paper (as long as your favourite paper isn't the Socialist Worker - the theme for this issue is 'shopping'). This issue's 'headline act' is Emeli Sandé.
Anyway, I'm responsible for the art pages of the magazine - not much chance to review or feature photography yet but I'm hoping to get some more photo-writing into forthcoming issues. If you know of a show in a London venue that you'd like to see featured in the Feb/ March pages, just drop me a line and I will take a look. In the meantime, enjoy the magazine itself - you can read online or pick up an issue at Bloomsbury theatre, Oval theatre, Shakespeare's Globe, Young Vic, The Book Club, Queen of Hoxton, Whitechapel Gallery, Proud Camden, Old Truman Brewery, and more exciting locations!
