Human heads have an enduring fascination. Believed to be Celtic, the carved Hexham Heads have cast a spell over all who have come into contact with them. Others have made examples in their image and those held by the author on this book cover are two such. On the left a replica created by the man who claimed to have made them in the 1950s. The other being made just ahead of a boy and his brother unearthing the subjects of this book. Since learning of the Hexham Heads and acquiring these 'archaic' facsimiles, Paul Screeton has spent forty years following what has been a QUEST FOR THE HEXHAM HEADS

The Gonzo Daily is a two way process. If you have any news or want to write for us, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are an artist and want to showcase your work, or even just say hello please write to me at email@example.com. Please copy, paste and spread the word about this magazine as widely as possible. We need people to read us in order to grow, and as soon as it is viable we shall be invading more traditional magaziney areas. Join in the fun, spread the word, and maybe if we all chant loud enough we CAN stop it raining. See you tomorrow...
The Gonzo Daily is - as the name implies - a daily online magazine (mostly) about artists connected to the Gonzo Multimedia group of companies. But it also has other stuff as and when the editor feels like it. The Editor is an old hippy of 53 who - together with his orange cat - puts it all together from a converted potato shed in a tumbledown cottage deep in rural Devon. He is ably assisted by his lovely wife Corinna, his bulldog/boxer Prudence, and a motley collection of social malcontents. Plus.. did we mention the orange cat?
On this day in 1947 the “Comedian” Russ Abbot was born. Abbot was voted the third most famous Scottish person ever, despite not being Scottish, in 2003 after the Krankies who came first and second.
