Arty 24: summer 2008

Yes! Arty 24 is still obsessed with the British vernacular. Diversifying a little from the seaside obsession of Arty 23, the Entertainment issue takes in all manner of traditional pastimes and amusements including eating, magic, music and dressing up as super heros.

The Entertainment theme sprung from my new found interest in the music hall. So with a nod to Walter Sickert and a tear shed for the non-sanitised kind of variety that Britain’s Got Talent would balk at, I hope that this issue will amaze, inspire and excite.

For your very own entertainment we have devised a number of interesting pastimes... Find some tiddly winks and a dice, head to page 20 and play James Payne’s Art Game. Grab the safety scissors and carefully cut out and keep Keara Stewart’s Entertainment Collector’s Cards. If you have a little more time to spare, travel to page 10 and teach yourself to read Tarot cards and then.
