Welcome to the archive of the John Barleycorn blog, produced by Howard Gayton and Rex Van Ryn during the process of creating their graphic novel John Barleycorn Must Die. As part of that process, you'll find discussions of magic, of creativity, and 'Around the Table' discussions with a range of internationally known artists, writers and film makers. The graphic novel was printed in a limited edition, so if you managed to get one, good for you! Although this project is over now, we're leaving this blog online as an archive and as a snap shot in time.

Postcard 6


  1. Ah success at last! Good to see Rex upright again. Great view!

  2. Although judging from the number of wine bottles and the size of that cocktail, being upright may be a temporary phase!

  3. But what a time to land in Cairo....
