Some Mackintosh news

Having just visited Hill House and Scotland Street School again I thought it might be a good time for some Charles Rennie Mackintosh links:

Some long lost work by Mackintosh has been rediscovered. I first read about the mural in Dysart Kirk in the Herald, unfortunately I forgot to cut out the article and the picture (the online version of The Herald doesn't have the picture). However, I managed to find an article with a picture in the Evening Telegraph. Something to follow to see how this develops.

The Scotsman mentioned a new book about Charles Rennie Mackintosh a few weeks ago (The Quest for Charles Rennie Mackintosh by John Cairney), at the time I dismissed it as not very interesting. I blame the fairly bad quality of the text in The Scotsman (not exactly my favourite paper anyway), especially because I've since read a much more thorough review in the Sunday Herald. This review changed my mind and I've decided to buy it once the credit card bill from my holiday has been paid. If you're interested as well, you can either order it at or directly at the publisher Luath Press (no, their link to my pages has nothing to do with my recommendation, that was added after I had read the review in the Sunday Herald and decided to buy and recommend it).
