Monkeychild and I drove over to Corinium Museum in Cirencester today to view the Tony Meeuwissen exhibition and also to give Monkeychild an introduction to Roman history.
I absolutely love Meeuwissen's paintings; they're so detailed and above all, original and thoughtful. You can see why the Royal Mail have commissioned him to create stamp designs for them. Who wouldn't have been happy to receive one of these minature masterpieces adorning their letter?
Regular followers may remember me name checking Meeuwissen in my recent post about Woodbine cigarettes. Well, here's the book that I mentioned complete with a scaled down version of the cover in the form of a cigarette box - clever huh?
There are so many beautiful pieces on display, but I'll finish with my favourites, these chocolate boxes. Forget about the chocolate, I'll have the boxes instead.
