While the multi-talented actor and performer, Riz Ahmed, explains why it is the right time to reveal his true self to the world.

The Selectors TO BE

The Selectors TO BE CONTINUED... Textile Timorous Beasties Alistair McAuley and Paul Simmons have been producing bold, patterned wallcoverings, fabrics and home accessories since 1990. timorousbeasties.com Selects: Peacock Among the Ruins “In the world of textile and pattern, there are a lot of wonderful designs out there, but the artists are often anonymous. That’s the case with Peacock Among the Ruins, one of the earliest examples of a toile or copperplate print dating from around 1770. The name of the artist has been lost forever. We curated an exhibition at Dundee Contemporary Arts named after this print. The artist would have to physically carve the pattern into the copper – and he or she would have to sharpen their tools after every three lines. It would have taken the artisan a year to cut the plate. No matter how advanced digital printing gets, you won’t get this level of detail. It looks threedimensional, as if it were embossed into the fabric. It’s an amazing human endeavour and has hugely influenced our modern take on the toile. It’s arguably the best printed fabric ever made in terms of scale and the craftsmanship.” 14 / Jaguar Magazine IMAGE: R. JONES & CO, OLD FORD, 1761 At Jaguar Classic, our heritage is helping to build the future. New Jaguar D-types are being hand-built to the same exact standards, original drawings and specifications as the archetypal 1955 model that won Le Mans. That means the same straight six-cylinder XK engine, authentic materials and touches, together with the latest technologies and build techniques. Added to which, each car gets its own unique sequential chassis number following on from those early models. Originality will always have an unquestionable value.
