More up to the minute than Cilla McQueen: 1970s instead of 1950s. Is this an advance? I should say I prefer the movies of the 1950s to those of the 1970s; the architecture too. Or maybe my own personal decade of the 1970s was not that hot. Then again, both my kids were born in the 1970s, so it can’t be all bad.

These are scans of pages of a Tapa Notebook, filled out by Australian poet John Tranter for the University of Auckland Library. It recounts his experiences in Auckland in March 2012 at the University’s symposium ‘Short Takes on Long Poems’. John has published an internet journal with similar material. This Notebook has the advantage of handwriting, doodles, decoupage and lots of colourful New Zealand stamps.
