What the well-dressed coffee table is wearing this summer
Another summer, another round of books, magazines waiting to be read ... biography and fiction, the new BLOW-UP book, guides on Italy and Greece, the latest BFI programme.
And here are a few I prepared earlier:
Back to '77-'78: another table, another batch of books and a BFI programme (on Truffaut), books on Ireland and Greece, a Hockney book, and current issues of "Films Illustrated", "Film Comment" and "Films & Filming", and that Habitat ashtray! Never get a glass-top coffee table - you have to clean it every day as every speck of dust shows!
