"In this speculative venture avatars and scenarios proliferate and spin out as redundant probe-heads from the central processing machine that is Capital. Indeed, such a book as this accelerates the process. Here one finds characters composed of advertising refrains and slogans, cruising the mediascape, guided by a telematics standardization that manifests itself in brands and slogans, fast-food outlets and jousting tournaments. This book speaks of consumers and commodities that move at a pace which outruns the regulative speeds of the market, but that also move slower. Is this the future of Capital? If it is, then it is also its past. A court sub specie aeterni." ~Simon O'Sullivan Neomedievalisms are cultural practices that breathe a bouquet of premoderns as permanent rehearsals of coming events. Where medievalists may be prone to police the post-medieval weald for 'inauthentic' medievalisms, neomedievalists embrace the articulation and mobilisation of metahistorical 'anachronisms'. To the medievalist, medievalisms provide powerful indexes that reveal how post-medieval societies have variously imagined 'little middle ages' to suit modern agendas. To the neomedievalist, medievalisms are theory-fictions that facilitate ludic speculation on non-modern futurities. While neomedievalist theories have emerged in a variety of fields since the early 1970s - notably in cultural studies of medievalisms, international relations and literary theory -- there are few applications that synthesise and put the methodologies of these diverse fields into practice. thN Lng folk 2go applies this extant scholarship as an extradisciplinary practice, dramatising the neomedieval turn in (quasi)objects, persons, work, education, travel, food, ethnicity, media, art, hypereconomics and technology. This speculative journey is ghost authored by a trinity of neomedievalist narrators -- Journeyman, Anchorite and Host -- each relic-ing their own curious neomedieval futurities. Drawing its heterogeneous approaches from studies in medievalisms, international relations, literary theory, actor-network theory, anthropology, hypereconomics, art history, aesthetics, ecology, cultural theory, cultural geography, ambience, speculative realism and future studies -- thN Lng folk 2go is both an investigation of and a benefaction to a murmuration of neomedievalisms.

Hotel Du Cap Eden Roc
Between Nice and Cannes lies one of the world's most beautiful palaces. Standing on more that twenty acres along the coast, the Eden-Roc is a legendary estate where time stands still behind the rustle of Alep Pines. This elegant home, with its Napolean III style, has been a refuge since 1869, first to artists and writers, then to the great European aristocracy before receiving celebrities, mostly in the springtime during the Cannes Film Festival. In a tribute to CÃ´te d Azur, FranÃ§ois Simon evokes the uniqueness of this discreet place, which for the first time opens its doors for a publication, offering an elegant look at never-before-seen photographs.
