  1. Vogue isn't the first place I'd have thought of looking for a spread about British folklore! I like the idea of a Museum on the subject - hope the project comes to fruition, it would be a fascinating place to visit.

  2. Rowan, i agree, it just goes to show, folkore is making waves. The museum would be a must for me to visit!
