Dylan Thomas / Peter Blake

By strange coincidence, the same week a friend introduced me to a brilliant recording of Dylan Thomas reading his own poetry, I heard a review on BBC Front Row (21 Nov) discussing a new exhibition of illustrations/collages/constructions by Peter Blake, to accompany Thomas' 'Under Milk Wood'. The exhibition is in Cardiff, at the National Museum, until March 2014.

I find it hard not to read any of 'Under Milk Wood' without imagining it in Richard Burton's voice... a recording Blake says he still listens to at least twice a week.
