Live Art Almanacs are my favourite books in the Unbound cannon. They are like a bumper annual of the kind that some of you might have found in your pillowcase on xmas morning when you were nippers, only these are for grown-ups. They’re beautifully edited and loaded with tid-bits, gossip, sandal, intrigue and righteous rants by extremely interesting people.
