On the bus from Victoria, going past Trafalgar Square and the light flashed off the head of Marc Quinn's extraordinary statue, which had been unveiled for the first time that very day. Certainly a first in the history of sculpture, it sits impressively on its plinth, seemingly oblivious to the crowds below and the pigeons.

Down on Chalk Farm Road, visiting the Proud Gallery to see their Dylan Exhibition, linked to 'The Bob Dylan Scrapbook', published by Simon & Schuster. Met several beat characters and had a few Carlsberg's - as had many of the other revellers, especially the dude in the cowboy hat (there's always one).

Hot news I picked up in Snapper Books in Cecil Court, from a very bearded chap. The World Beard and Moustache Championships are being held in Berlin on October 1st. Not to be missed.
