After Christmas Before New Year

Posted by Mimi Mollica (Creator)

Did I have a good Christmas? Yeah!

Am I crazy fond in-love with Christmas? No!

I sum it up like so and will only add that in the global mess we live in at present, I find it a bit weird to suddenly wear a red jumper, eat like a pig and pretend George Michael won't die this Christmas ;-)

Anyhow...we all need a break! Only that George seemed to have taken a longer one..!

Talking of Christmas...since yesterday I am back at work and this morning I woke up with a wonderful sight from my balcony, which looks like the Comet came into Town...


Also the sight inside my home/office is not too shabby as you can see from these beauties being signed, thank-you'ed and wrapped. Whilst I am preparing everything now, I will send the books in batches. Some have already reached safely their destination, some others will be posted tomorrow and some in early January, just because I rather wait for the holidays to finish so the books won't be lost in translation...or transportation I should rather say! If you should have any specific need do get in touch!!

Another good news is that yesterday I discovered that Sean O'Hagan has written about Terra Nostra on his 2016/2017 picks alongside some very notable names in Photography...




Last but not least I wanted to let you know that I will talk about Terra Nostra in Brighton on Jan 4th from 7pm at the Old Market...clickthrough the image to get more info.

I will bring along some books and posters to sell, but if you have pledge during the campaign and wish to collect your book personally in Brighton, DO LET ME KNOW!!


I am sending to you all my best wishes for a great 2017, and although it's now established as a cliches that 2016 has been a terrible year, I am happy to say that at least you all made it GREAT for me and for my book, so...THANKS SO MUCH!!!!
