This week worked to brainstorm items for exhibition, pulling items from the stacks and researching the connections between them. I’ve found some very cool things, but am struggling to freaked the Francis Bacon connections out of 16th and 17th Century England. I think it’s important to find connections outside of the English speaking world, and get representation in the exhibition from the rest of Europe and the non-white world. SO far, I’m not having much luck.
I’ll be out next week, attending the Texas Book History Workshop.
