Until Next Week...
I was planning to post this week, but considering that the internet seems to be a virtual ghost town because of the Fourth of July holiday, I'll wait until next week.
I do, however, want to bring to your attention a recent BBC article profiling Kinsey Marable, the man who, according to the BBC, "builds up private libraries, book by rare book." In the article, you'll find excerpts from Marable's lists of recommended books for, say, a Guest Room Library or the Country House Library. Suggested books include those by Beverley Nichols, Cecil Beaton, and Ludwig Bemelmans.
Whether you plan to play, relax, eat, or read your way though the holiday weekend, have a Happy Independence Day!
