Lest you be confused
Wednesday, 5 October 2016
I cannot speak for you, but in my house Capability Brown's tercentenary rolls towards a cvrescendo, with timpani and trumpets. First the Brown Advisor has now posted his 292nd note (http://thebrownadvisor.com/). The target that fits the year (300) is within sight. The Tatler's Waste-bin however is still open for additional questions. Second, the fifth edition of the list of sites attributed to Brown is even now on the point of publication (http://johnphibbs.uk/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/160506Attributions.pdf), and third - this is the potentially confusing bit - the first of my books is about to be published. This is Capability Brown, designing the English landscape. Published by Rizzoli it is intended to accompany and complement Place-making, the book to which you have pledged yourselves and which is currently due to be out on December 1st.
The good news is that there will be a book launch for the Rizzoli book at Somerset House on the 17 November - an invitation will be issued in due course, but it would be as well to reserve the date right now.
All the very best to you for the many ways in which you have enjoyed the tercentenary,
