Issue 1 – August 2022 (Digital)


Quite unintentionally, but with serendipity, the editor is rather glad that the articles offered this month have themed themselves – in essence, the first three articles are all about the way the genius of individuals can be realised through a sharing of ideas and how that can infect others with a creative spark. We begin by looking at Sir Thomas More and how his connection with the great thinkers of his age led to the publication of his magnum opus ‘Utopia’, a book that launched the artistic career of Henry VIII’s court painter Hans Holbein. Then in a profusely illustrated article, we look at one of the delicious works of the ecclesiastical designer Sir Ninian Comper and how his relationship with the Duke of Newcastle and their joint love of the Middle Ages resulted in the creation of a Gothic, devotional fantasy at Egmanton in Nottinghamshire which still delights us today.  Lastly, because the editor fancied being a little askew, the final article focuses on a man who couldn’t be more different to the gregarious More and Comper, a man who withdrew from the world: his name is John Bigg, a peculiar misanthrope – whose story is both odd and unresolved.
