    June 3, 1953: “In the tramp of ten thousand marching feet the oldest among the spectators heard an echo of the might and majesty of the greatest empire that the world has ever known,” a breathless reporter for The New York Times wrote on the occasion of Queen Elizabeth II’s crowning. “Only the British, among all the peoples of the earth, could have staged such a display and every moment of it seemed to be savored by an appreciative public drawn from the four quarters of the globe and from virtually every nation and people under the sun.” A far cry from these days, when it seems the only thing keeping the monarchy from receding into obscurity is a single tiny baby.

    HAPPY KATE BUSH WEEK, EVERYBODY

    Now that the only likeable manic pixie dream girl in the history of the world is playing live for the first time in 35 years, expect a lot of our music coverage to centre around her return. Just for a couple of days, mind.

    If you weren’t lucky enough to nab tickets to her series of shows, live vicariously through Alexis Petridis’ five-star review (and Harriet GIbsone’s liveblog from night one, yesterday).

    cooperhewitt's Object of the Day: Chinoiserie Wallpaper, c. 1770-80. 

    This 18th c. English wallpaper was designed in the style of Jean Pillement, french illustrator and royal painter to Marie Antoinette. 

    The repeating pattern of flowers and foliage show Asian motifs w/ a Western spin. More about how Pillement gained inspiration for this design without actually setting foot in Asia.
