I first visited the Musei de Palazzo Poggi way back in 2012 when I was setting up Creating a Context , an International, project for Postgraduate students in Art and Architecture involving seven Universities across Europe, funded by the British Council.  It was love at first sit

The Viktor Wynd Museum of Curiosities, Fine Art & Natural History, London.

The Viktor Wynd Museum of Curiosities, Fine Art & Natural History, is perhaps better known as the home of the Last Tuesday Society.  I was keen to see the collection as several friends had mentioned it, knowing my own penchant for collecting ephemera, and I’d had a quick look at the book Vikt
