This picture was taken after a day of installing a bespoke collection of leather, cloth and hardback books I had curated based on the theme of Italy. It was all about art, cookery, coffee and (on another note) the area in Newcastle where the library is based.
While attempting to get a full view of the large bookcase, I noticed my reflection in the mirror up on the ladder (a reflection I only would have been able to see from that height) and wanted to capture the moment; there’s something quite empowering about doing all that hard work up a ladder in a dress!
Organising books is something I love; making them easily accessible and interesting but also a beautiful feature. Basically we decorate with books to encourage people to get engaged, be entertained and feel inspired to relax with a good book – what could be better?
