The Quality of Leicester

Publication of the third (apparently entirely new) edition of the popular and impressive The Quality of Leicester book should be more or less imminent, as indicated by author Michael Taylor during a talk he gave last November (see "poster" below).
In the meantime, 'preview' photos were installed on the hoardings around the construction site at the recently demolished "Faulty Towers" building (former HQ of Leicester City Council) – see screenshot from Google Street View below. The temptation to take "photos of the photos" was too great to resist, resulting in an online photo album.

Sogenannte "Autoposer" scheinen in Deutschland zu einem Problem zu werden. Siehe Spiegel-Berichte hier und hier.

Interessanterweise steht "Poser" (und "Poserin") bereits im Duden! "Autoposer" wird wahrscheinlich demnächst aufgenommen.

Als Reaktion auf Autoposer empfiehlt sich demonstratives Wegschauen.
