the great blueness

When in San Francisco recently my wife and I visited the Contemporary Jewish Museum, which happened to have an Arnold Lobel exhibition. One of the titles on display was "The Great blueness and other predicaments", about a magician in a world of grey who discovers how to mix colours and the problems that ensue. Sound familiar in a way?

Welcome back. Are you rationing posts, these days?

Although this Dulux ad is about banned colour, it has echoes.......

Hi Skids,
just been tied up with family business for quite a while but back to "normal" now, I hope.
Waiting for the next part(s) of the "Grey" trilogy to see how it evolves. I wonder if Jasper knows about the Lobel book, which is sadly out of print and only available at a high price - the extracts We saw looked very interesting for a children's book.
