42 Photos from The Life of Pye launch party at Angus Hughes Gallery

“There once was a number - That tore this Universe asunder - It held the key - To all that we are - All that we will be - Released our base desires - Set our minds free - For it was more than Forty-One But less than Forty-Three”
Above: A 42 word poem about the number 42 by Mr Calum F. Kerr
