That Opening Ceremony!

Having to make long journeys almost every weekend from August 2012 onward, I passed the time by studying the remarkable and controversial opening ceremony of the London Olympic Games, directed by Danny Boyle (and all-but-murdered for American viewers by #nbcfail), which had taken place on 27 July. Eventually, I turned my notes into a sort of ebook, titled "By Strange Conveyance", which you can download for free:

mobi format (for Kindle readers)
epub format (for other readers)

NB: Now also available, bonus online map index to videos of the firework finale!
and an illustrated essay on YouTube, Behind the 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony exploring some of the themes of the ebook
