The magic button — Make Everything OK HUMUMENT.COM - The Official Site of A HUMUMENT by Tom Phillips Introduction Fifth edition 2012 A Humument started life towards noon on November 5th (Guy Fawkes Day) 1966 at a propitious place. Austin's Furniture Repository stood on Peckham Rye where William Blake saw his first angels and which Van Gogh must have passed once or twice on his way to Lewisham.
