Manchester Literature Festival, 8–23 October


A typically packed and dizzyingly varied roster once again from this year’s Lit Fest. Manchester is book capital for the duration of this autumn city festival. Coupled with the annual boost in the concert calendar, you might find you’re out and about in the next few weeks more often than you were in the drizzly summer.

I could choose to fit the canvas print that I was ordering from wahooart.com to the pattern and color of the wallpaper in my living room. I could search for artwork by subject matter and even predominant colors. Then I customized the frame online because the site allowed me to match the frame style with different wallpapers, one of which looked like ours.
So now have this canvas print by Pierre Bonnard, http://en.wahooart.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LT4PD
