Self-portrait in British Library

Wednesday 21st March 2018, 2.40pm (day 2,400)

British library selfie, 21/3/18

There are worse places to come and do a couple of days’ work than London and worse buildings to spend the first day in than the British Library. I seem to have come out looking like the business end of a felt pen, but still, I quite like this one. Day 2,400 of the blog, a nice round number so I have updated the stats (if you really want to see how obsessively anal one can get with chronicling). I calculate day 2,500 should come at the end of June.

Reaching down

British Library hands, 2/9/16

What significance this sculpture has, I have no idea — it currently hangs above the gift shop of the British Library. I guess I should invent some meaning…. but it’s the weekend.

Punk rock family tree

Friday 10th June 2016, 2.05pm (day 1,751)

Rock family tree, 10/6/16

As famously drawn by Pete Frame, and currently on display in the British Library’s “Punk 1976-1978” exhibition of photos, fanzines, posters, record sleeves etc. from that era. If you have half an hour to spare and you’re in the area I highly recommend it.

The British Library

Friday 18th May 2012, 3.25pm (day 267)

British Library, 18/5/12

Went to London on a day trip today, for a meeting, which we held here mainly because it’s easy to get to and a nice space. What you see here is the ‘King’s Library’, the King in question being George III: his library now sits as a kind of monumental pedestal n the centre of the building. The new concourse at King’s Cross station is also pretty cool, by the way. With St Pancras between the two this is becoming a decent part of the city.
