One and Other book about Antony Gormley's Fourth Plinth is published
MY LONG-awaited copy of the One and Other book arrived on Friday, filled with photographs of people taking an hour of their time to stand on the Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square as the request of Antony Gormley.
Strange to think now that, back in July 2009, I was one of them, and even more bizarre to see the thing I took part in on a sunny Sunday afternoon being written about academically.

It's a beautiful book with one major fault - they spelt my name wrong. Instead of going down in history as Laura Davis, plinther 149, I will forever be Laura David. How disappointing.
Anyway, I cheered myself up by hunting out pictures of some of the other plinthers who I happen to know. There seems to have been a large proportion of Merseysiders taking part - perhaps just because I'm aware of them, I don't have the actual figures.
If you took part, wherever you are from, and want to share some of your thoughts about the experience/book then please get in touch and I'll add them to this blog.
