For anyone interested. There has just been formed the Rowland Emett Society.As you may know Rowland Emett(1906-1990)was well known for his artwork and his fantastic whimsical machines. Regretfully he is in danger of falling off the cultural radar and that would be a great loss,so its worth a look

I must say - I have a strong admiration for the rules of the society:

Rule 1: You must have an appreciation of the works of Frederick Rowland Emett

Rule 2: There will be no further Rules.

Rule 3: see Rule 2.


If you can dream---and not make dreams your master;
If you can think---and not make thoughts your aim,
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same:.
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build'em up with worn-out tools...
