If a safe, effective vaccine were deployed early in 2021, if I managed to get it, and if the Australian government would allow me in, I'd be there for sure.

The original plan would have had me working on-site right now, rather than remotely, deciding on installation details during the day, and sipping wine in an Airbnb on the beach as the sun set into the Pacific each evening. But, no, covid ruined all that. Well, not all of it. Brisbane ruined the sunset part by being on the wrong coast...A great pity to happen when most of the world is locked down.
We take our granddaughters off their parents' hands for on-line schooling twice a week at 7:15 am. That's roughly 2 hours earlier than any civilized person should have to do anything other than sip coffee. Although it's not quite early enough to see the sunrise, it will be as the days shorten. I'd say I'm looking forward to seeing the sun rise, but that would be a lie, since I'd rather be asleep.If you are an early riser then an orange juice and a sunrise are pretty good too.
Phaidon is a major publisher whose costs are completely independent of QAGOMA's expenses for assembling the actual exhibition. QAGOMA's website shows they have the book discounted at AU$62.95, which converts to £34.65. For comparison, twenty years ago the Guggenheim's catalogue retailed for US$75, which is US$120 (£57) in inflation-corrected money, so it's a relative bargain.With all the expertise and personnel involved in this I imagine the catalogue is going to be an expensive item?
You're right. I used an on-line calculator and copied the result without thinking about it. A different calculator gives a more reasonable £91. Even if I originally had entered AU$ by mistake, that still would be £66 so I don't know how I ended up with the original figure.Sadly US$120 is no longer £57. More like £90 - £100 without looking it up.
