Simon Garfield: In Miniature

Fri 23 Nov / Quarterhouse

Why are we so fascinated be model villages, miniature food and the flea circus? Part of the answer lies in our desire to control an unruly world, while another part may be found in our obsessive human desire to achieve perfection.

Simon Garfield is the author of 18 hugely varied books of non-fiction, including the bestsellers Just My Type, On The Map and Mauve. In this richly illustrated talk, he explains how to see, learn and appreciate more with less.

12 noon
