The glowing reviews of Eric Parry’s extension to Bath’s Holburne Museum have led some to ask if this isn’t the work of the museum’s director Alexander Sturgis, otherwise known as The Great Xa and a professional magician.

Alas, his powers didn’t extend to long-time critic of the extension, the Bath Heritage Watchdog, whose website claims the sunlight hitting the building’s ceramic surface is causing its own special effects that are “so bright that it dazzled and left the image of vertical stripes on the eye for a while afterwards”. Magic indeed.
