2022 Bibliophile Trip to the UK

This fall, I traveled for the first time since the pandemic. So, naturally, I turned the trip into another book-related exploration. I was fortunate to be in Oxford during three significant book-related exhibits: the International Designer Bookbinders Exhibit, the Bodleian's exhibit entitled Sensational Books focusing on the senses that are evoked through reading books, and the Ashmolean's exhibit on the Pre-Raphaelite artists, including their book illustrations.

A Bibliophile’s Tour of London

To start our book world exploration, Anthony Davis, solicitor, scholar of distinction, and bibliophile, provided us with two, half-day private tours around specific areas of London, such as Bloomsbury, that were rich in history related to literature and books.
