Disturbing news reaches Astragal's horrified ears of what could be one of the most bizarre ventures in recent publishing history. Apparently veteran publisher Andreas Papadakis is on the cusp of producing a new book called The Naked Gardeners. This intriguing publication will feature an old friend of the architectural world, Ian Pollard.

Those who don't remember Ian will surely be aware of his contribution to London's urban fabric; his unerringly awful Po-mo effort Marco Polo House, near Chelsea Bridge.

Quite what the new book will involve is unclear at the moment, but if it involves the architect and his wife Barbara getting all naturist then Astragal will, possibly for the first time, be truly lost for words...
