The Story of Pelican Books

I love Pelican books and this new series looks to be better than ever! Let us hope that they go back to the original style of the 1950s.

See the following for the concluding paragraph from Hiromi Kawakami's 'Blue Moon' in the recent Granta issue 'Japan'. Probably doesn't grasp the beauty of this essay but it is well worth a read.

Pertamina Energy Tower

This skyscraper looks to be quite awesome and is certainly worthy of note and something to keep an eye on. This will be the first 'net-zero energy' tower in the world. It will embrace wind power, solar power, possibly geothermal power it will be a mini-city with 20,000 inhabitants. I am quite attracted by these new projects and it will be good to see how it turns out in reality.
