Day 10 6/11/07

The British Library blew me away. The Sacred Collection defies description. Listening to the Beatles while reading the original lyrics written on a napkin was an entirely new experience. They had the stamps that started the American Revolution, the Gutenburg Bible, the original Alice in Wonderland, Canterbury name a few.

Turns out, Central St. Martins is visible from the window in our flat. Catherine Dixon and Phil Baines gave us an interesting talk on some work they did for Penguin Books.

Peter Saville. Not sure where to start really. This has been the best talk so far, and I'd be hard pressed to say any others will top this. I think I'll save this part of the blog for my 2 page paper.
