This issue’s cover features Francisco de Goya’s The Injured Mason (1786-7). It is a part of a series of paintings that were created as models for a tapestry that hung in the Royal Palace of El Prado, near Madrid. Goya was inspired by a 1778 edict by King Charles III concerning construction safety ‘to avoid accidents and the death of workmen’. An early sketch of this painting showed happier expressions on the two men carrying the third, which was given the nickname “The Drunken Mason.”

    I must procure a modicum of Absinthe to enjoy in my study whilst digesting the new issue.

    (In moderation of course.)
