Ressurecting Books in Birmingham

resurrecting the book
 Sir David Cannadine surveyed the history of libraries and Johanna Drucker spoke about book in the ecology of things. I could only stay for a day - such a shame to have missed two more days of so well organised and so well put together conference.

My presentation on book destruction in 1940's Lithuania turned out to be longer then I had originally intended. A huge learning experience! (and eight points into my notebook of the improvements to be made). At the end of the first day the exhibition of my fired books was unveiled (literally!)
