Long Live the Book

Personal book collections serve as a kind of autobiography and sometimes, for the incurable bibliophile, they’re hard to cull.

Physical books imprint in our minds not only the stories within their pages but memories of who gave them to us, where we bought them or first borrowed them and what was happening in our lives at that time.

This exhibition of watercolour and ink paintings pays homage to the beautiful, tactile nature of physical books and the place they hold in every passionate reader’s heart.
