and …another new art-book  

Following on from ‘A Sydney Opera’, another eciting project is evolving  

An exquisite idea for a new book titled 1909, surrounding the marvellous and mischievous going-ons in the very inner-circles of the birthing of Modern art and modern society at the beginning of the 2oth century in and around Montmarte, in early 2oth century Paris.
