More Library of Alexandria

Even though I am focusing on Claire's poem; I have enjoyed reading the many explorations into, around, over and under the Library of Alexandria.

I came across this work by Ania Gilmore over at Catherine Nash's blog and thought it would be good to share. Sorry about the size of the photos...

Lovely! I have seen this book before on artsits books 3.0 but didnt realise the significance at the time. Thanks for this Fiona.

It is lovely, and ties in a bit with my ideas about using scrolls in a box (not a book). In my head I am slowly getting moving... in my studio developments are somewhat less obvious! Thanks for the link, Fiona.

Oh I have seen this work before too but obviously didn't read the title. Thanks for highlighting it, Fiona.

Yes, I recognise it, too.

And, probably of greater interest to the Claire Beynon group, there's this:

Thanks for the link to Catherine Nash, Fiona. She just led me on a long voyage of discovery.

Beautiful horse, Di, but I don't think I can incorporate that into my Paper Wrestling.
