I hope you are all feeling better prepared than me for Christmas next week (next week!). Maybe something beautiful behind today’s door…
Beautiful bindings, volumes from Local Studies
Together these items were actually the first of our 50 Treasures – chosen by Local Studies Librarian, Lisa, who reminds us that items can be appreciated simply for their aesthetics as well as the information they hold.
Those who have visited the Record Office since we reopened as and archives and local studies service nearly three years ago, will have seen how other items in our collections have inspired the internal decor, from wallpaper to building signage to a poem inspired by Treasure 11.
