Hipgnosis was an English art design group based in South Kensington, London that specialised in creating cover art for the albums of rock musicians and bands, most notably Pink Floyd, T. Rex, The Pretty Things, UFO, 10cc, Bad Company, Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, Scorpions, Yes, Paul McCartney & Wings, The Alan Parsons Project, Genesis, Peter Gabriel, ELO and XTC.
So many to choose from, all equally fantastic.

After watching the documentary Deep Water, I became very intrigued with Bernard Moitessier. As one out of nine sailors, he stood a very good chance of winning the Sunday Times Golden Globe Race, but suddenly he abandoned his effort seven months into the race and never returned for another year.
He chose to sail on to Tahiti rather than return to England. He wrote a fantastic book about this journey titled; The Long Way. The book is about Moitessier’s voyage, discussing his decision that sailing and the South Pacific were more compelling than the “snakepit” of Europe.
“I am really fed up with false gods, always lying in wait, spider-like, eating our liver, sucking our marrow,” he writes about that decision. “I charge the modern world – that’s the Monster. It is destroying our earth, and trampling the soul of men… I look to the sea, and it answers that I escaped a great danger.” – Bernard Moitessier

They are off.
Yes, it has not been the most PR friendly year or years for cycling but nonetheless I still hold a deep respect for the athletic performance and dedication this sport requires on a honest level.
I will be watching the Giro d’Italia once again, admiring the beloved landscape as much as the competition.

Wonderful photography from Canadian born Scott Conarroe.
By Sea anticipates nostalgia for this present moment, a coda to our golden age. It surveys the perimeter of a dominion that begins and ends at sea level. This civilization commenced when Europeans stepped ashore to re-imagine everything between three coasts; the coming era will play out in terms of climate change, sea level rise, and paradigmatic shifts in global power. – Scott Conarroe

The FT Weekend has been my weekly offline read for years and one of my favorite columns is the Lunch with the FT.
From film stars to politicians, tycoons to writers, dissidents to lifestyle gurus, Lunch with the FT gathers fifty-two fascinating interviews conducted at the unforgiving proximity of a restaurant table.
The list of people who have participated in this popular feature since 1994 reads like an international Who’s Who of our times. Meet the rich and famous, the weird and the brilliant, the brave and the virtuous, all brought to you by the Financial Times’ global network of columnists and correspondents.
To celebrate the FT’s 125th anniversary, they have published along with Penguin Books, a selection of 52 of the best interviews. Published both in hardback and an ebook version.
