Another ‘incidentally’ – if any mad, wandering billionaire feels like swooping in and backing Phoenix Ark Press, or funding a legal campaign for redress against nasty New York Abrams, you’re very welcome. We’re tired of so much work without earning a living, publishing is a collapsing sink pit of cynicism, and we need a holiday. If ‘free enterprise’ has replaced the structures of state support, while the rich and replete swan off to Davos, to talk rubbish about the ever-widening gap, perhaps we need to bring back the likes of the Earl of Southampton, and modern patronage without the patronising!
