Lost in books

Bookish week. I saw the artist group aMAZEme constructing this maze of books in the back of the Royal Festival Hall two weekends ago. When you pop in to see it make sure you also check out the Poetry Library on the 5th floor. It is free, has every British poetry book from the last hundred years and more and you can borrow. If you live a way off you can post the books back to return them. It is the perfect risk free way to discover new poets. Then there is Foyles in the basement of the RFH and the main shop across the river on Charing Cross Rd and the Tate bookshop for art books and the second hand stalls under the bridge in front of the NFT. Lots happening on the South Bank these Olympic weeks. The food markets are also on every day.

Yoo hoo! JooHee Yoon!

Thanks Grain Edit for another fine introduction. Check out illustrator JooHee Yoon‘s whimsical worldview. I love the way she uses the teeth in the expressions for an extra twist of pathos, wicked glee, or grim concentration.
