A word from the Lost Library

Elizabeth Willow joined us last week with her Library of Lost Books 1886 copy of Nuttall's English Dictionary. She letterpress printed words from the dictionary onto reams of small cards and invited visitors to take a card and get a definition from the dictionary.

The space soon got very busy with folks crowding round Elizabeth to take a word or hear a definition read from the 127 year old dictionary.

It was wonderful listening to people try to guess the meaning of their word and to share and talk about the words with each other.
