Flying 24,000 miles in two weeks is a bit much. But well worth it! First, I raced back to London for the opening of the latest, really spectacular show at the Fashion and Textile Museum.

As well as all this damn usefulness Perry's journalism background shines through. She drafts in Tracey Emin and Grayson Perry to slog over the 'art versus craft debate', and the book has an overall clarity consistent with a good communicator and wordsmith.
