Pylon of the Month - October 2012

This month's Pylon is different for all kinds of reasons as I am sure all but the most unobservant of readers will have already have spotted.  After quite a few years of real pylons that you could actually go and visit if you were so inclined, that might prove more diffcult this month.  I have also kept the contributors to the website anonymous, but this month I'm happy to report that the pylon is tattooed on the arm of Karol Michalec from Brighton (as always, click on the photo for a larger version).  You can find out more at his website.  Although if you do go down to East Sussex to visit Karol, you could also visit the Patcham pylon that I mentioned only last month.  I've never really been tempted by body art myself, although as I'm due a mid-life crisis perhaps I should pre-empt it and visit my local tattoo parlour.  If I did, I'd be very tempted by a bubble chamber tattoo, although perhaps this equation for the momentum/position version of Heisenberg's uncertainty principle might be a bit more understated and stylish?

Anyway, the other bit of pylon news this month relates to a book, The Beauty of Electricity Pylons in the Dutch Landscape, that I mentioned back in November 2009 after it featured in Alain De Botton's fantastic book, The Pleasures and Sorrows of Work.  One of the authors of the Dutch book (Anne Mieker Backer) has got in touch and so I now know that is published by De Hef in Rotterdam. So if you are looking for an unusual Christmas or birthday present for a Dutch speaking friend or family member then your search is over.  Full details here.
