An exciting weekend

Well, it’s been an exciting weekend here at the Library of Lost Books, we've been very busy and have had some excellent progress with our book, Bringing Back The Book.

We’ve come over all fanboy again as another of our favourite authors has given us an endorsement to add to our Neil Gaiman quote. Joanne Harris, author of Chocolat and LOLB favourite Runemarks, emailed our curator Susan Kruse with a quote, adding that she is looking forward to seeing the finished project and hopes it does really well. So do we, Joanne! (Yes, we're on first name terms now…)

As well as all the nerdy excitement, Susan and Jessica worked tirelessly on Saturday to finish the final edit for Bringing Back The Book, and have sent it for its external proofread. They have also secured October 15th as an official publishing date.

With 171 beautiful images, including photographs of the artwork taken by Professor David Knight and articles from outside contributors about lost libraries, typography and much more, we're very proud of the book and can't wait to share it with you. In the meantime here’s a little taster to whet your appetite:
