Hannah Frank's Funeral
The funeral of Scottish artist Hannah Frank took place today, the shortest day of the year. She died peacefully last Thursday at the age of 100. From her student days she produced a charming monochrome Art Nouveau illustration for every occasion, until the 1950s when she took up sculpture. In the 1920s she signed her drawings Al Aaraaf, a name she took from a poem by Edgar Allan Poe. Click the title link to visit the Hannah Frank website, but don't visit its HOME page. Some idiot has put a badly designed Flash Player 9 routine on that page and it crashed Internet Explorer on both occasions I visited it. On my second visit it locked up my PC and I had to press the panic button and reboot. Why do website designers insist on using Flash Player?
