A couple of weekends ago I visited the Magical Books exhibition at the Bodleian Library and it was fantastic! It was full of mystical books from the middle ages and fascinating handwritten notes and drawings by J.R.R.Tolkien and C.S.Lewis. The most incredible exhibit of all however, was the First Folio of William Shakespeare’s comedies, histories and tragedies. It was almost tucked away; a lot of people simply walked past it! I think Oxford is one of the few places in the world where such an important book can be easily overlooked and lost among the other exhibits.
This weekend I’m spending a lot of time outdoors as we’re having such lovely autumnal weather. Today I’ll be picking apples at a local orchard, I can’t wait! What are you up to?
Some interesting things from around the web:
An incredibly moving piece about what makes us human. Have tissues nearby.
Trish has organised another round of Pin It and Do It for October. Do sign up, it’s fun!
This looks like the most awkward interview with Naomi Campbell.
It’s not new, but a very interesting comparison of U.S. & World covers for Time magazine.
I hope you are having a great weekend!
