Last week I scooted down to London for the evening for the launch of Charlotte Abrahamsí book The Ultimate Guide to Wallpaper. The party was held at the Cole & Son factory, where we were treated to seeing the factory in full printing action. My highlight was Ron, who in his 49th year of service showed us how flocked paper was made the traditional way- using a sieve that had been there since 1925. Amazing.

Thank you to Charlotte Abrahams for putting together such a great book, and all those at Quadrille Publishing. Finally not forgetting all of those at Cole & Son for working overtime to let us see them in action, although I heard they got Friday off so maybe it wasnít such a bad thing.

  1. Me enorgullece saber que somos maestros porque nos nace del coraz√ɬ≥n y que ponemos todo nuestro empe√ɬĪo para hacer desde estos chavos personas √ɬ≠ntegras para la vida. Y esto se aprende en 2 lugares: en la casa y en la escuela. Esto es lo que M√ɬ©xico necesita!Hay dos tipos de educaci√ɬ≥n, la que te ense√ɬĪa a ganarte la vida y la que te ense√ɬĪa a vivir.

  2. I love the quote, and the pictures! Great shots. Funny how much you can love your children even when they drive you nuts from time to time LOL. My boys can really put me through the ringer sometimes but I still can't help but love them more each day!
