What is Lorem Ipsum?
Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Why do we use it?
It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

Where can I get some?
There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don't look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn't anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.

Narcissus & Nicholas

An introduction to an art dealer with a difference; meet Nicholas Campbell of Narcissus Arts

 

Nicholas Campbell of Narcissus Arts is a contemporary art dealer with a difference. Aside from being soave and sophisticatedly dressed, this bon viveur only champions works under £10,000 and is unique in that regard in the UK.

 

Also an ambassador for the renowned Frieze fair and the founder of another firm that has supplied corporations, hotels and restaurants including Daphne’s, Sartoria and Smith & Wollensky on art acquisitions, Stowe educated Campbell spoke with The Steeple Times recently. He enthused about his passion for his craft and tellingly commented:

 

“I’m sick and tired of people going to such things as the Affordable Art Fair and then meeting me and saying: ‘I wish I’d known about you before I bought…’ I do believe there is ample opportunity to buy good work for reasonable figures and that’s what I aim to share with those I advise”.

 

Campbell’s clients range from financiers and fund managers to models and fashion designers and here below he describes three of his favourite works he currently has on offer and why he likes them.

 

  • My first selection is a photograph titled Private Moon by Leonid Tishkov. A popular artist, especially amongst the romantics out there. A little bit of fun for Christmas time.

      • I came across a new painter named Caroline Larsen on a recent trip to New York. Her psychedelic landscapes have an almost woven effect to them, and her work has proven very popular with collectors of emerging painters.

  1. Thanks, Matthew, so pleased to learn about him and the art he sells. Incidentally, if his photo is a realistic representation, he can make my cocoa any time….
