The Literary Museum

I spent another happy afternoon pottering about Christopher Ondaatje’s amazing collection of Bloomsburiana and other associated literary material which he houses in remotest Devon.   He has made the collection over the last decade, buying books, including many first editions, and then buying portraits which go with the books.   It’s an odd and very satisfying combination of a visual and intellectual feast, including many wonderfully atmospheric photographs, particularly after a good lunch.
